I noted this as a rant. But actually, it's a pointless rant. Anyway, one thing that annoys me about Apple's notebooks is how cheap and plasticy the keyboard feels. This also extends to their desktop keyboards. The keys are shaped, smooth plastic. Now, I know this really doesn't matter at all in terms of usability, but Apple is all about aesthetics, and thus it seems very "un-Apple" to supply such a crap quality keyboard that almost immediately begins to show ugly signs of wear and tear. Finger oils, uneven "shininess," etc. I know quite a few people get bothered by this and attempt to clean the keys, to no success. Now, other vendors like HP and Sony have solved this problem by either a) making the keys out of a different material (my Sony Vaio P netbook has aluminum keys) or b) applying a coating on the keys that resist wear and tear (like the HP Mini). Considering how much an Apple notebook costs these days, you think Apple could afford to make the keys a little more resistant than they presently are. So I guess my point to all is that this while there is nothing fundamentally wrong with the keyboards, I just wish Apple tried to make the keyboard look a little newer for longer.
