Ive been using my new mbp for a few days now and, seriously, typing on this thing is so fast. I usually use a high end mechanical keyboard at home (pok3r with mx blues) but I can type way faster on this keyboard due to the small travel distance. I can still feel every individual keystroke, which is a big step up from the 2015 MacBook and every keystroke is a solid click which doesn't vary depending on what part of the key you've pressed. It's the same whether you hit the edge or the dead centre. As a bonus the backlighting is incredibly sleek. The only downside is that the arrow keys are a bit hard to suss out by touch, so I have to look down at them. For comparison I've owned a dell xps L702x which has a more traditional chiclet key layout. On a side note, I was considering the dell xps 13" instead when the pricing was released (as I bet many others were too) but I'm so glad I went with a MBP even if its a bit pricey. The build quality is mind boggling-ly good. If only I didn't leave fingerprints everywhere, Id be running my hands over every inch all day.
