This Will Fix Apple’s Macbook

  • Published: 04 July 2019
  • Apple has a 16" MacBook coming in 2019 but even cooler is the report of these new glass fiber scissor switch keyboards!
    Patient Zero:

    These will presumably resolve the issues from the butterfly switch keyboards should be thinner than your normal scissor switch laptop while supposedly increasing key travel and increasing durability

      Hey Dave, Thanks for followwing up on this for us. Wwell, of course basic marketing rule is to never admit that the wwhole majority of these keyboard fails. So acting like it but still denying the importance of that failure is their way to go and it's totally understandable. Wwill wwe have further news on the possibility to have that neww keyboard in 2016, 2017 and 2018 MBP before it's actually available? I'm starting to have my "ww" key doubled most of the time... (Oh sh*t wwait...) Should I repair noww or wwait then?

    It's ok if apple makes mistakes. They fix it in the future, no matter how long it'll take to fix it. And everyone knows that after apple does it, so will all the other manufacturers and we all know that is true. The other companies are ignorant, they are all like ohhh so we are copying everything apple is doing cuz we care and we are "cool" so if you have a problem with that just buy a Microsoft surface tablet then use the 150$ keyboard accesory cuz it's "better" than iOS

      I bought the completely speced out Mac book pro in 2017 and 3 months later my whole keyboard stopped working

        This will presumably not fix the keyboard. The mechanism should be fine. It's the thin size that doesnt allow for dirt and dust particles.

                      Apple should just go for an all-metal scissor-switch mechanism, using a stamped-metal mechanism as those will be even thinner and more durable than even the current butterfly keyboard design.

                        Why don't they just replace the keys with vent holes to keep thermos down and just have an optional keyboard. I just need super portable desktop with a Mac spec.

                            Surely thousands of people working at Apple were waiting for you release this video so they can fix macbook keyboard. Has Tim given you call yet! ROFL.

                                In my opinion butterfly keyboards were an experiment to innovate keyboards, they took a risk, most people had issues with the keyboard, they tried to improve on it but it didn't work out so they're going back. There's no innovation without experimentation. I'm still on my very first MBP from 2016 and it's still a better and more durable laptop than any windows laptop I've ever had to work on. The keyboard is not perfect - albeit I quite like it tbh - and I'm excited to see what they came up with but I hope the new one won't lose the short key travel and "key responsiveness" when hitting only the edge of a key.

                                  Gotta praise them that they want things to be thinner, but sadly they can't perform as good as thicc boi.

                                    ... even including the keyboard service program: if you buy a new Macbook Air 2019 ( 'upgraded' Butterfly mechanism by the way, no scissor ) there's the fact that 4 years from now Apple will not replace the keyboard anymore and you might get stuck with a malfunctioning keyboard. I used to own a Macbook for at least 8 years before buying a new one! Thank you Apple for having this program up, but in essence it's pretty much a reality distortion field. Unless you don't care and just buy your next Macbook within 4 years or maybe 4 years and 6 months?.. We'll see.

                                            the keyboard situation was the reason to switch to the thinkpad series and it was the best decision. also PORTable

                                                    Never had any issue with the butterfly keyboard on my MacBook pro 2018. Stop, eating, snacking, smoking, sawing bookshelves above your keyboard. What is the issue....or am I just lucky?

                                                    If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. They should’ve stuck with the scissor switches from the start. Only took them 5 years to learn that the butterfly design wasn’t going to work.
