Yup. :/ I have a €149 Chromebook that's been...handled not so gently. The keyboard – and everything else – works without a hitch. It's 4-5 years old, and admittedly I'm not using it nowadays, but it was almost 15 times cheaper than this MBP! Perhaps I'm suffering from Stockholm syndrome when it comes to Macs... If Scrivener and Adobe CC worked on Linux, I would have been on, er, linuxrumors.com by now. I can't believe the only "safe" (keyboard-wise) laptop Apple produces now is the Air.
