    don't you hate it when you type too fast and barely lift your fingers when you type since the keys are so flat and flush to the point where your finger tip/nail digs under the key for a quick second and makes you cringe cause of the awkward strain you put onto the key(s)? well, made me feel bad for my mbp keyboard and wanted to know how durable they are.

    ps. i know about the moshi pads etc, i may invest into the all clear one.

    The new mbp keyboard, like all isolation-style keyboards is very durable and even if you did manage to pop off a key, I'm pretty sure they can just be pressed back in. One question: how long are your fingernails cause I've never had that problem in years of using my macbook

    haha, i know that feeling too well from playing a steel-string guitar...
    my suggestion is to lift your fingers more while typing, or to clip your nails short.
