    I was in Bestbuy and it seemed to me that the Macbook Pro 15" keyboard was a little better than the 13 pro keyboard. The 15" keyboard had much of a click feel than the 13". Is it just me?

    I tried both today when I visited an authorized reseller and didn't really feel or hear a difference between the two keyboards.

    Must say, the keyboards on the MBP's are amazing - far and beyond the best laptop keyboards I've ever used. :cool:

    to me the 13" pro keyboard didn't have the same click feeling...more of a smush feeling. The diff. was slight but there. No one else detected this?

    I did hear somewhere before that the unibody keyboards between the 13" and 15" were slightly different to reflect what customers were used to. The old MBP keyboards were slightly more squashy than the old MB keyboards, which closer reflect the current tiled keyboards, and so Apple did make the MBP keys slightly more squashy in the unibodies as this would be what the Pro customers were used to.
