    I have an aluminum MB and I'm looking to upgrade to a new 15" MBP. I noticed that Apple changed the keyboard so that it looks like the current GEN MB keyboard.

    Any difference (feel, look, etc) between the MBP and MB keyboards?

    I really liked the keyboard on the previous GEN MBP. Curious what folks think of the new board...:)

    Since this is my first mac laptop, I can't give any experience on prior ones. But I will say that I'm not too crazy about the keyboard. Its spaced a bit far apart and I tend to miss letters when fast typing. It feels hallow and does not have the solid feel, and thus making it feel a bit cheap. I'm sure I'll get used to it though.

    Typing feels the same as it did on the plastic MacBooks and it's the same experience as on the new unibody MacBooks.

    The keys are slightly spongier than on my old plastic mb.
