I have the original MBP with the shiny keypads and I tried the new MBP.s the other day and a little trouble trying to get used to the keypad.
How do you like the new keypad compared with the older design?

If by keypad you mean the area where the letters combined with function key would be a number pad, then I must say I never really used it. I could never get used to it, I always used the number row anyway, so I never really noticed or cared that it was gone.

I mean the the style of the new books, keypad, letters, etc are black and have spaces in between them compared with the older books.. Like I said I had trouble typing on the newer keyboard. But I stink at typing anyways

Yeah, it takes some time to get used to, but once you do, it's awesome in my opinion.

I love the tactile feedback I get when I type on these things. It's not mushy or anything so it's great. Also, I get less typos on these keyboard than my other keyboards around the house, so that kinda proves that this keyboard works for me.

Never really had the original MBP, so I can't really compare the two, but MBP's keyboard is definitely one of the best keyboards I've used so far.
