Might be time to find another option for my mobile business needs.

Options are the Sony S-series and perhaps Acers 8471 series. I think the Sony has the better display though.
I agree that Apple should be offering an anti-glare option on all its machines that have LCD (iMacs included!).
FYI, I have installed/applied the Photodon anti-reflective film to several computers, notebooks and iMacs. It does do as it is designed, to significantly cut down on reflections. But in a few cases, I have noticed a kind of 'twinkly' effect that I am not sure is to my liking. Not sure if that is because of visual interaction between the film and the kind of LCD display or what. But the photodon aftermarket option, or other similar vendors, is about the only choice till Apple comes around.
I have submitted several Apple Feedbacks on this issue, requesting them to provide anti-reflective screen options/choices. I would encourage you to add your comment there as well, as I think they are more likely to do something if they hear it directly.
