Totally agree 150%. new chick let of the MBPs are pathetic. I cannot stand them!
Much rather my original MBP keyboard for sure!
What I don't get are the tiny arrow keys... needless....
And I don't like the placement of the fn key...
Much easier next to our friend ctrl hey!
I like how thin the keyboard is but the typing feel is pretty poor...
You just don't like change. I love the new keyboard over my iBook G4 keyboard any day. I'm a programmer and have to write lots of code and it's perfectly fine. I just wrote a 5+ page essay for this english class I'm taking and the keyboard is much better than those old MBPs (my friend still has one which I've borrowed once or twice).
The iMac alu KBs are close to how I like the feel/speed, quite ergonomic. However I think I like my MBP original the most, feels the best putnof any MBP I have ever tried.
I'm a fan of the current keyboard, much better than the ones I've previously used..
I prefer the design in general of the older multibody MacBook pros. I'm predicting the next design change will go back to straighter edges rather than all the rounding, like the bew iPhone has ditched curves for bolder lines. Looks more mature and just cooler imo.
I like both keyboards. I like the springiness of the non chicklet, but I remember how impressed with the chicklet keyboard I was wen I first tried one.
The new iPhone is still curved around the corners. I would hate a MBP with blocky sharp corners.
I'm on the fence. I like both keyboards.. I hated the chiclet keyboard but now I'm used to it, I really like it. But, my old non-unibody keyboard was nice too.
I still prefer the old silver keys over the new black ones.
yep, I definitely like the old keys much better.
It took some time, but I did get used to the new ones
I like Apple's new laptop keyboards, but not the new desktop ones. I mean, laptop keys don't suit a desktop computer! It doesn't feel right
i disagree there, i like not having to lift my fingers up high
I prefer the iBook style keys over the Macbook style... but I like the keyboard that came with my family's Performa 5200 more than any others.
I prefer the new, black "chiclet" keyboard. It seems to take less pressure to press down a key; it's easier on my arthritic hands.
I've been using the newer chiclet style keyboard on my new 2011 mbp for the last month, and I will say that I still miss the older style keyboard from my original core duo 2006 macbook pro. That keyboard really was perfection. I can understand how some people prefer the newer style, but I really miss the nice concave embrace of the old keys on my fingers. I find that I occasionally miss the key I am aiming for with this new design, which was never the case with the old keyboard. Oh well, I'll probably adapt in time. but those are my thoughts.
Although a lot of these posts are pickyness to to the extreme.
I like my non unibody MBP keys, they feel perfect to me!
Hopefully the next redesign will find a best of both worlds.
Much prefer the current keyboard. Because on the old MBPs there was no space inbetween the keys, I kept hitting 2 at a time accidently.
I seem to be able to do fine on both the "chiclet" keys on the current MB/MBP line, and the iBook/PowerBook G4 key style. I do have to say I prefer the way the iBook handles keyboards, though... (Not sure about the PowerBook, since I've actually never seen or used one in person, believe it or not.)
I've never had too much trouble adjusting to things like this, though. Now, if you wanted to get into trackpads... every Mac's throws me a bit off (being used to PC trackpads), though they seem like they'd be nice to adjust to.
