    Has anyone else noticed this?

    The Air's keyboard compared to the most recent 15" MBP has much less travel than the 15", due to the thinness of the Air no doubt. Some will prefer one or the other.

    Myself I prefer the keyboard on the 15" MBP quite a bit more for typing long periods of time on compared to the MBA. It seems with the MBA it's too easy to 'punch' hard on the keys since there is less travel.

    My staff is showing up with some 13" MBP's of their own now and I noticed today the key travel on the 13" MBP falls somewhere in between the 15" and the Air. The 13" isn't quite a 'soft' to type on as the 15" and not as shallow as the key travel on the MBA.

    Of the three I like the keyboard on the 15" MBP the most for long periods of typing the keys have more of a cushioned feel than the 13" MBP or MBA.
