    I don't believe the 17R1 ever had a glossy screen. @Ashtrix have you seen an R1 with a glossy 60HZ screen?

    Afaik, the 120Hz only exists with glossy screen no 60Hz. Plus I'd suggest OP to upgrade to the 120Hz panel rather than going for 60Hz panel, because in future 120Hz is the only way forward, Pascal support Plus Optimus sucks, and optimus doesn't work with Maxwell either.
