Its shallow and hurts my fingers if I am not careful.
A healthy dose testosterone does it for me..
I'm not sure how you can put something under a keyboard that's built into a computer...
Like a Tempurpedic mattress, but for laptops you mean?
Just get an external keyboard, that should solve it.
OP... I don't think you are explaining yourself well.
What do you mean by "It's shallow"? Is it the angle of the keyboard (being flat)? Is it how your Palms and the keys are on virtually the same "plane" (do you want your palms above or below the keys)? What exactly do you mean?
Help us help you....
It hurts more than the one I had that wasnt retina and that had more thickness to it. The keys are shallow.
There's nothing you can do about key travel. An external keyboard would be a good option for extended typing if the built in keyboard is not comfortable. I like keyboards with Cherry MX Blue or Brown switches.
I mean, get a gym membership. Seriously, your fingers should get use to it. If it doesn't you may want to consult with a doctor because your fingers should not hurt when typing on a MacBook Pro
Maybe don't punch the keys like a maniac? The keyboard is very nice and the keys travel nicely, I can't imagine what could hurt you there.
Welcome to owning chiclet keyboard laptop...
I use an external keyboard when I'm at home.
I don't mind the keyboard, its the trackpad I hate. I much rather use a mouse, so I keep a mouse with me when I travel.
Don't type so hard.
or buy a different computer, those are your options short of an external keyboard and that sort of makes your laptop a bit pointless...
There was one article i've read, that said that you need to type on the keyboard as if you are playing the piano.
I don't understand how a keyboard could possibly hurt your fingers. I own a 15" rMBP and the keyboard on this laptop is by far the best keyboard I've had on a laptop. It's easy to type on and it feels smooth and slick. I just don't understand how a keyboard could hurt while typing unless you are hitting the keys too hard, but even then it shouldn't be hurting your fingers. It's not like it has razor blades on the keys or something. This just makes no sense.
How old are you? How much time do you spend actually typing in a given day? How many days a week do you do that?
RSI is a real issue when it comes to typing. Especially once you've been doing it 8 hours a day for 20+ years.
I like the rMBP keyboard, but prefer Apple's bluetooth keyboard because it has a slight angle and more key travel.
or this for portability
No thank you. I prefer my mechanical keyboards
It depends on what is beneath the keyboard. If Im typing with a really soft puffy blanket under it, it doesnt hurt my fingers. So I was wondering if there was something portable that I could always put under it so that it wouldnt hurt my fingers.
How about a really soft puffy blanket?
I hear they're pretty portable
And then these people complain about overheating
I use a laptop desk, similar to these (but dark wood top with burlap bottom):
What can you put under rMBP to make typing on pleasant?
If you mean, make it angled. Saw a contraption on Amazon(that I am not finding at moment) the other day that stuck on bottom back of MBP and it had little things you opened that propped back up, similar to feet on normal keyboard that can be open or collapsed. Might look into something like that? If I find a link, I'll post it here.
Perhaps this OP?
