    If anyone could describe it if possible, that would be great. I couldn't go to the Apple Store to try it out because it is like two hours away. Sorry, I am so excited. I promise no more questions today. I am just so anxious. lol.

    The MacBook keyboard is surprisingly good. Looking at it you would think it couldn't be any good, and it does feel weird at first, but, in my experience, after a week or so my old iBook was the one feeling weird... now I prefer the MacBook keyboard over all other keyboards I've tried... :)

    i feel the same way, i think overall it feels really nice.

    Maybe you could go somewhere else that carries macbooks to try it out like maybe a futureshop, london drugs, maybe best buy (not really sure), or Staples Buisiness Depot.

    I don't like the cheapness of the macbook keyboard. Reminds me of my old TRS-80 COCO computer.
    The macbook pros keyboard feels alot better.

    Yeah, but I was already spending enough money and I didn't need the pro features.

    I have both. You get used to both pretty quick. The MB is actually easier to clean IMHO.

    I agree. The keys are easy to find and comfortable to use. I do wish that the keyboard was a bit less "clattery" though. Otherwise, in key spacing, size, and resistance, it's almost perfect.

    Depends what you like. The MBP i find to be more on the quiet and soft side, offering easy keystrokes.

    the macbook has a very nice feeling keyboard in terms of feedback and crispness.

    I like both.

    It's actually pretty nice; I'm typing this on my MacBook right now. I wasn't sure about how the keyboard was gonna feel at first either. And I agree with Mitthrawnuruodo about after getting used to the MacBook keyboard, other keyboards start to feel a little weird, but not too bad.

    Nope, only some PBs and all the MBPs have the light-up keyboards, unfortunately.
