    Keyboard Replacement Experiences - Do issues come back?

    Hello y'all, I have a 2017 MacBook Pro, and I had my keyboard replaced in the summer of 2019 after my spacebar was giving out. Now my 'A' and 'D' keys are repeating and I need ANOTHER replacement. For those who have had a recent keyboard replacement, are the new keyboards any different and...

    Butterfly issues while in (online) college... what are my options?

    So I've finally after almost three years of ownership have begun to have issues with my 2017 non Touch Bar MacBook Pro. To begin, each key feels completely different from one another.

    ~Last year, my old 2016 Macbook Pro got completely unusable because of the keyboard issue (it started after a few months and wasn't a big deal, then it got much worse over time), so I bought a brand new Macbook Air 2018 thinking a keyboard cover will save me, from the day one, I've put a...

    I am probably late to the game, but today I got my 16" MBP and I wanted to post my impressions, especially for those considering it and are used to have a 13" MBP. I am still configuring it, so there are many things I cannot really know yet (like battery life), but I will start with the...

    Keyboard noise - add an isolation layer UNDER the keyboard?

    Hi, I have a Macbook Pro 2019 Do you think I can open/disassemble my macbook, and put a layer of sound-isolation UNDER my keyboard? The noise I am trying to get rid of is not the noise of the mechanical click of the keys, instead it is the noise of the mac itself acting as a sound box, as a...

    Update on 2019 Butterfly Keyboard?

    It’s been about 5 months since it came out, so can anyone who has any of the 2019 MacBooks confirm whether the butterfly keyboard issues are still there or not? Is it completely fixed in this refresh? Is it finally reliable? Ps: I’m specifically talking about the 2019 keyboard with the new...

    Is the 2019 MacBook Pro keyboard an improvement ?

    Just wondering if this new material that is being used in the butterfly keyboards for the 2019 MacBook Pros and MacBook Airs has actually decreased the failure rate of the keyboards.

    Q? - Hack/replacement keyboard for 2017-18 MBP?

    I did a quick search on the forums, so apologies if this has already been discussed and I missed it. Has anyone heard of an aftermarket keyboard for the latest gen of Macbook Pros? I wandered through the Apple store today and tried the 15in 2018 MBP and gotta say, *sigh*. Ignoring the...

    MacBook Pro model suggestions

    In the market for a MBP, just had a few questions: Is the new-style keyboard really that bad? If not, I guess I'll wait and see if anything is announced at WWDC. If it really is terrible, which model is the most recent without the butterfly keyboard? Am I right in thinking the 2015 models are...

    Couple drops of water from my water bottle cap on keys??

    Shift key feels spongy on Butterfly 2 keyboard

    As soon as I started using this new MacBook Pro I felt something is weird with the keyboard. The shift keys do not feel as clicky as the rest of the keys. They feel a bit spongy as if something sticky is underneath them, and the click also sounds different. Do any of you have this problem? I...
