Normal or no?
Depends on the model and you probably want to define "shiny."
June MBP. They look shiny, what else you want me to say?
June of what year? You're not giving much information. What exactly are you asking?
I loved the old powerbook/macbook pro aluminum look. I really wouldn't call that shiny though, probably metallic.
These are shiny, and an eyesore (imo). Worst part is that its a plastic shine, it just feels gaudy.
So metallic is sweet, shiny is ugly.
It's probably your finger grease.
Yeah it's normal. These new black keyboard on the unibodies tend to wear out real quick and therefore looking shiny when u look at it at angle at lighting.
it is normal, but ugly. I learned this with my first uMB from october.
by the time i sold it half the keys looked like i wiped them down with WD-40.
that is why i bought a Moshi cleargaurd cover when i bought my June 2009 15" macbook pro.
P.S. you were extremely vague on your question. in the future maybe give a little more than a sentence fragment in you initial post.
& don't get pissy when people that are trying to help you ask for some clarification.
Normal or no?
normal or no?
useless or no?
it is when the starter cops an attitude when you try to answer his question.
"june MBP, what else do you want me to say?"
is it zune HD ?
I've never seen it wear out on any of my mac keyboards. I have however seen massive amounts of finger grease on the keyboard keys that make it appear worn and shiny.
Every keyboard wears out quick. It's just harder to see on some keyboards depending on the colour.
i have had my MacBook for about 8 months now and notice the same thing.
you can definitely notice which keys are worn and which keys aren't (aka ones you don't hit like the right option key for me)
oils from your fingers also play a role in this, but when your keyboard is clean you can still see the 'shine' or 'wear'
They will get even shinnier the more threads you type
Same with my keyboard. It actually helps me type faster and without thinking of the key travel and hand position.
That's why I like my Apple Wireless Keyboard. Over a year old and still looks like it did out of the box. No noticeable wear at all (check my post count to see I haven't exactly been easy on it!)
