Not so fast! The Apple Antiglare display is not the same as Apples base unit display!
 
From Apple's online store page: http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/shop_mac/family/macbook_pro
 
- MacBook Pro 15-inch Glossy Widescreen Display
 
- MacBook Pro 15-inch Hi-Res Glossy Widescreen Display
 
- MacBook Pro 15-inch Hi-Res Antiglare Widescreen Display
 
If you have a Hi-Res Glossy display it's a easy exchange for the Antiglare via Apple or by getting their replacement part.
 
If on the other hand you have the standard Glossy display I was told the Hi-Res display requires the AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 1GB or AMD Radeon HD 6770M with 1GB memory to drive it. And will not work with the AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 512MB.

I would double check with Apple to make sure your system could be upgraded. Either the video memory and/or display its' self.
 
Frankly, I think the cost of buying a new MacBook Pro via the online store would be cheaper than replacing the display. If you are exchanging out Apple displays.
 
If you're going with a 3rd party exchange out then they are taking your outer glass and sand blasting the glass (Matting it) and then rebuilding it, so theres no issue with the display logic. But it may not be as good as the Hi-Res unit.
 
Make sure you've see up close what one of their conversions look like before forking over the money.
 
I'll agree the matte cover sheets are not very good. But at least you can change your mind.
