    Apple sure likes to make crap. Any predictions on what is going to break on the 2017 /2018 models?

    Customers should be happy that keyboard didn't spit out butterflies.
    And best part that we will see is People's thighs fusing with Macbook pro with 8950HQ/HK chips and letting people use their lappies all the time. Just opening the screen is enough. Then again, Apple won't cover liquid damage.

    Meanwhile, T61p NMB continues to be one of the best laptop keyboards I have ever typed on, and probably the only reason I continue to use a 10 year old laptop. M17x/M18x keyboard is also very satisfying to type on, I just wish it had less flex to it. Key travel is excellent on both, and reliabiliy has been wonderful. Only pro of the MB keyboard was no flex but that doesn't outweigh ****ty design and crap key travel

    Yeah older AW keyboards were quite solid. GT 75 Keyboard still best notebook keyboard period. At least you can switch out other keyboards without literally having to peel of every single key.
