    So I spent most of the week debating if I should go 13" MBA 2011 or 13" MBP early 2011. When I finally decided on the MBA, I sort of noticed in the Apple Store that its keyboard was more shallow than that of the MBP. I felt a strain typing compared to the MBP. I am not sure if this is just psychological since they appear to be the same parts.

    It is my first time t o buy a mac laptop (been using a mac desktop with logitech keyboard) so I would like to know if the shallow keys are a mac problem for both models (ergo I should go for the MBA anyway) or that MBA has shallower keys (and I should go for the MBP)?

    Now, the MBA and MBP keyboard are the excat same, it is just the MBP is fatter so yuo can rest your hands on the sides better than a MBA
