I didn't write this, saw it on twitter when John Siracusa Retweeted it I know there's a lot folks who believe the keyboard is fine, and what we see here at MR is because people tend to go to forums to complain and the in fact the keyboard is not defective, but I think this article helps lay bare that mindset. Maybe I should know who the author is, but I don't. Looks like she's some editor, but other then that, I'm not sure. The new Macbook keyboard is ruining my life Salient points I found interesting: Seems like this author has interviewed some apple folks and they seem to be aware of the issue, and that that geniuses, the first line of repairs back up the notion that this is fairly large. I have no idea if apple will change the keyboard in the 2018 model, I really hope they do, as we have two years of evidence that the butterfly keyboard performs worse then the prior design.
