Title:

Upgrade LCD Screen to High Res Anti glare Matte

Text:

My dumb employer ignored my request for a new pro. I specifically asked for the Hi Res Antiglare screen (Matte). Instead they up-spec'd everything but the screen. So I've got all the high end options but with the low end glossy display. Can I upgrade to the high res antiglare?

I should need the high res lcd and the metal silver bezel. I would remove the glass front and glossy lcd. My main question is does the laptop display assembly from the glossy lcd (LCD and glass front) accommodate the matte lcd and simple metal bezel? Meaning are the display assemblies the same regardless of which lcd is installed?

I see ifixit has no high res LCDs in stock. This is the Mid 2012 model, which looks like it uses a different matte bezel because they changed the isight camera opening.
