This thread makes me hug my beloved 2015 model and my credit card would like to say thank you to everybody who posted here...
Just wanted to add another report of keyboard issues, 15" touch bar model. Had it for about a week. I have two distinct issues: 1) the "a" key is less responsive than all others, especially on the top part of the key, and it often does not respond during normal typing; 2) similarly as described by the OP, my "tab" key will sometimes double-type, for no apparent reason (that I'm aware of). Quite annoying when cmd+tabbing through open applications.
Have to find time to get to an apple store, but I can't decide - should I get it fixed, or just return it and get a 2015 pro? Any opinions?
Return it and get the 2015 model. You can find these discounted at other retailers and eBay (From trusted sellers) for much less. Way too many QC issues concerning the 2016 models from what I've observed in this forum. Just my $0.02
Well, what I noticed is that my "e" key issue is getting better by the day. As if it had to "burn in" somehow.
Despite having the Genius at the Apple Store recommend me to return my MacBook, I'm tempted to keep it as it is perfect otherwise, and you never know what you're going to receive in return. OTOH, for that price you expect a perfect machine.
So there you go, I can't decide myself... although I definitely wouldn't get a 2015 Pro. This machine is just too awesome to return
Well, the point is that happy people will not post in the forums to say they're happy... also, it comes with a warranty, so any issues that might pop up later on can be repaired for free.
The enter key on my 2016 MBP completely lacked the tactite feel and seemed "sticky". So i ended up returning mine... Now for the long wait before i get a new one!
Yeah it was more of an annoyance than a problem to be honest. If it doesn't bother you and the key works, why not keep it I hope you get lots of joy out of your Mac!Same problem but not waiting so will put up with it. Not a big issue to me.
I ran into this is on the 12" rMB. Not cool (missing key presses and doing double entries with a single press). I also had a couple of 15" I exchanged because of bogus keyboards... some felt mushy while other clicky... had a mushy spacebar key on one and though it was just my imagination. It bugged me though and sure enough after checking out a demo, I had a bad spacebar on my 15" MBP.I have the same thing with my brand new 15 inch! The u key. Sometimes it doesn't work at all. Other times it types twice.
Guess I'll be returning it. Wanted to take this laptop on a trip next week. :-/
