    I was told theres some flex on some MBPs is that true? Im hoping to get a unit that has absolutely 0 keyboard flex.

    What if you press down hard on the MBP keyboard or keys itself does it give in at all?

    What a bizarre question...but I won't ask why you feel the need to "press down hard".

    Either way, with "normal" pressure put in the keyboard, there is no flex. It will, however, flex very slightly with brut force.

    Considering it is a milled piece of billet aluminum, it is unlikely without a vise (and possibly other tools) and some muscle that you will be able to flex the unibody.

    The lid, on the other hand, being made from stamped aluminum has some flex.
