I set up my new (refurbished) 2018 13-in. MBP (2.3GHz, 1TB SSD, 16GB RAM) yesterday. After doing a good deal of research, I opted for the 2018 refurb instead of the comparable 2019 new to save $400. The only spec difference, I think, is the processor, 2.4GHz for the 2019. At any rate. I'm very pleased with it, though the 13" screen takes a little getting used to after six years of a 15-in. MBP (also refurbished), not to mention 15-inch Windows machines before 2013. The one thing I miss is the MagSafe power connector. A lot. The keyboard is perfectly fine for me. I type a lot and seem to adjust to whatever keyboard I have. I like it better than my 15-in. 2012 rMBP, and that keyboard was fine. This one feels more solid and sounds much less clicky. Whether it holds up, I guess, is another story. Which brings me to the manufacturing date: May 20, 2019 (battery mfg. date is March 10, 2019). I was surprised that 2018 models were still being made the month that the 2019's were released. I'm sure there's a reason for it, and some of you with more knowledge and awareness of these things wouldn't think twice about it, but I was a little surprised. Is there any possibility that 2019 keyboards were used in these late 2018 models?
