I just received a new 13" MacBook Pro a couple of days ago. It has the new scissor keyboard that Apple has moved to. I came to this from two different Apple butterfly keyboards. The bottom line is, I find the new scissor quite superior to the butterflies.
It is taking a little time to get used to the 1mm vs 0.6mm travel. I have to raise my fingers a bit more as I move around the keys. The butterfly keys did allow for very fast typing, but often led to keys that jam or malfunction with crud getting caught in them. And the key feel wasn’t particularly satisfying. The feel seemed to be polarizing - love/hate for most.
I suspect that most we’ll really like the feel of the new scissor. The feel is reminiscent of the TextBlade. Very satisfying and I find my typing is more accurate than the butterfly. Make no mistake, it is still no TextBlade. The keystrokes are solid but the spacing is still the same as standard keyboards.
Still, i don’t think i will have to have this keyboard replaced as I have had to do with the butterfly. And for small amounts of typing, it works well. Longer sessions will still be TextBlade generated!
