17 inch matte screen desktop replacement laptop

I'm looking for a laptop with a 17 inch screen size that can handle image processing tasks. The most important aspect of the laptop is the screen. More specifically I want a MATTE screen with Full HD resolution. After using a glossy screen for 3 years I honestly can say I don't want another glossy screen due to the reflections and glare you get when using the laptop. Spec-wise it should be a desktop replacement machine.

Do you have any recommendations?

Thank you in advance!

Aside from G74 3D which isn't available yet and it's kinda pricey,other G74/G73 models have a glossy display

Thank you all for your replies!

I'll check the above options.

I can't believe how hard it is to find a non-glossy full HD display on a performance laptop.

I'm in the same boat. I wanted the Asus G74SX for graphics purposes but it has a glossy screen - a total deal breaker! If anyone knows where I can find one (1900 res of course) would you please let me know? Thanks!

I'm considering buying from this place:
anyone got one of these? seems good value when you add i5, 8G, matte screen (refreshing to see a option to have no OS).. anyone got strong opinions on whether the GT 555M 2Gig gfx card is necessary given I'm not a big gamer?
