love it or hate it?
It's a novelty that isn't really needed IMO. I like the MBP keyboard as it is...very easy to type.
i agree, the current keyboard is the deal
Looks so much better than the current MacBook Pro to me.
The current MacBook Pro keyboard looks outdated compared to this.
Well, I don't know. I still type better on my MBP and PBG4 than I do on my iMac's slim aluminum keyboard (which more or less has the same type of keys as the MB/MBA).
One keyboard I do miss a lot is the Onyx-colored one from the TiBook. Sexy. Plus, it was easy to replace because it lifted away by unscrewing the twist lock and releasing two small tabs.
Now if they could put an Onyx-colored keyboard on a MBP and keep the design the same as current with backlighting, I'd be in love.
Fuddy duddies: do not resist.
I see those chicklet keys and I see new fangled excessive accessories, that kind of lose their charm and initial glamor after a month or so.
The MBP keyboard looks dare I say: like an elitist keyboard...something like the famed thinkpad keyboards that you can get only if you shell out the $$ for that model. Makes them all the more special because they belong to the MB pro.
If it was silver, it would be good.
If only those chicklet keyboards were as nice to type on as the Thinkpad keyboards. I have a Macbook and I like the keyboard alright, but I have a T61 at the office and love the Thinkpad keyboard. I really like the feedback, travel and slightly curved tops of the keys on the Thinkpad keyboard.
I like it...
The thing I don't like about the chicklet keyboard on the MBP pictured is how they put the keys on the wrong way.
their purposely on backward cuz its a photoshop. idk exactly why, i didnt make it.
I absolutely hate it.
what happens happens...
i dont really like the feel much, but then again i hate almost any laptop, i have to use an external KB
Almost loving it. Needs a casing refresh, loose the gray plastic trimmings, curved corners like the air/iphone, loose the latch! bigger trackpad and we're good to go.
I do prefer this style of keyboard, feels more solid in some way, less squeaky, I can't stand the squeaking, and the weird silver pieces above the <home and end> keys.
MBA keyboard on a MBP... naw~~ NAW~~
I could do with the new keyboard and the upgraded trackpad. The rest of the changes are incidental and won't effect my purchasing decision one way or another.
I just purchased a Macbook Air and I have to say I love the keyboard (I use the bluetooth keyboard with a Mac Mini on a daily basis and I've owned a Macbook Pro with the current style keyboard for over a year).
G-d, I hate those keys; I bought an Aluminum keyboard and man I hated how crappy it was, not to mention how expensive as well... Too bad I can't return it now.
Same it's fine with me I think it looks cool. I just hope it's as easy to type on
Btw since yesterdays forum maintenance the whole screen flickers to the macrumors top-left logo every time I type a letter on my iphone
I don't like the texture of the MBP KB. Also, oils are very noticeable on the keys. That's why I use an iSkin.
Anyway, I don't think the keys can be plastic like the MBA's because of the fiber optic lighting.
I like it. I have the new style keyboard and don't find it at all bad.
Oh so the shiny keys are normal, I have to clean those often, or they smudge my screen.
The MBA has backlighting on its keys aswell, so no problem there. Plus the MBP's keyboard is plastic, squeaky plastic.
Yup, but i like black keys for some odd reason....
'Cause we all wanted a G4 powerbook when we we're little and didn't get it.
what if it was the normal MBP keyboard, just painted black?
