ill believe it when it actually happens. Why would Apple release new updated parts on the 2019 macbook pros a month ago only to give the new october computers new keyboards all together?
Makes no sense to me anything keyboard wise this year will get a new design just for that reason.
Next year possibly but still its weird they would even update the keyboards with new materials if they where just planning on dropping this design of keyboard. Why put new $$$ into improving one year of a product to just drop it entirely the following year?

Ugh, I hope not. I don't want to go to the old wobbly keys. Unless they can make them feel like the new butterfly ones.

have you not tried the magic keyboard? Its better than the old macbook pros wobbly keys, same design slightly less key travel. Its perfect in my eyes.

You prefer a keyboard that inevitably break?
All keyboards inevitably break. For my use case, I don't really care if the keyboard has a slightly higher chance of breaking prematurely (not that I think that it's ok to have unreliable keyboards).

Still, I prefer a keyboard that I can type on quickly, accurately and comfortably.

Yeah, I'm using it in the office, but its still not as comfortable for me as the laptop one. The keys are smaller.

At any rate, keyboard preference is such an individual topic that it simply can't be discussed in an objective manner :)

but what type of key style do you prefer more? The magic longer travel keys but still precise feeling or the short macbook pro butterfly? If they released a wider macbook pro size keys with magic keyboard travel would you like it more basically?

I think what I like most about the butterfly keys is how large and stable they are, this allows for faster and more precise typing. I never really cared much about key travel (as long as the feedback is there), but of course it does not mean that I think key travel were bad. If they manage to make a keyboard that combines the wider, more stable keys of the butterfly design with the longer travel, I'm sure I'd be happy with it.
