    Can't believe this hasn't been posted on the front page yet... It's all over Interwebz, I picked this link as one of many:

    If it has been posted elsewhere, my apologies, I didn't see it anywhere.

    Gizmodo doesn't get it. If there was haptic feedback, the experience would be totally different. It may actually be good to write on.

    Of course, it could also be awful, but who knows but Apple.

    I find that touch typing on the current MacBook is tough enough anyway as you can't blindly feel where the keys are.

    If there was a way that they could emulate that with haptic feedback, I'd be really impressed.

    Not interested until the MB can read my thoughts and type them out on screen.

    That's the 2017 update. It will also be thinner.

    I'd be fine with it as long as they raised the edges around each key, used haptic feedback, and kept the bumps on the F and J keys.
