5 Reasons To Wait for the 2018 MacBook Pro & 3 Reasons Not To

Wait for a New MacBook Pro Keyboard

Wait for a New MacBook Pro Keyboard

Apple made a big deal about the MacBook Pro keyboard when the company switched to a new switch style and modified layout in 2016 with the new design.

This keyboard allows for a thinner design, but it has less travel and a frustrating placement of the arrow keys. Apple kept it for the 2017 MacBook Pro but there are some major issues. 

The new keyboard can fail due to dust or a small piece of hair and the cost to repair this outside of warranty can be $700. Casey Johnston writes at The Outline, "The new MacBook keyboard is ruining my life." Johnston explains, "In every other computer I've owned before I bought the latest MacBook Pro last fall, fixing this would have begun by removing the key and peering around in its well to see if it was simply dirty. Not this keyboard. In fact, all of Apple's keyboards are now composed of a single, irreparable piece of technology. There is no fixing it; there is only replacing half the computer."

This is a major issue and if you want to see how much dust and debris falls into your keyboard take a keyboard and bounce it on your desk on the side or upside-down and look at how much comes out. 

With complaints and issues coming in over several years, we're hoping Apple has a solution to this planned for the 2018 MacBook Pro, even without a major redesign. 

In late June Apple acknowledged MacBook Pro keyboard problems including;


  • Letters or characters repeat unexpectedly
  • Letters or characters do not appear
  • Key(s) feel "sticky" or do not respond in a consistent manner

Apple is repairing or replacing the keyboard on the 2016 and 2017 MacBook Pro models, which is an indication that Apple is well aware of the issue and is planning a more robust keyboard for the 2018 MacBook Pro.

    This sentence makes no sense: “If you are looking for a new MacBook Pro your options are to buy a top of the line used 2015 MacBook Pro with tons of ports…”

    How is a used MBP an option if you are looking to buy a *new* MBP? Maybe you meant to say, “If you are looking to upgrade your current MacBook Pro…” or something similar.

    Also, do not capitalize all of the words in your numbered lists. Treat each numbered item like a sentence and only capitalize the first word and proper nouns.

    Finally, don’t expect 32GB support this year. That requires a different processor and a new motherboard that can support DDR RAM because LPDDR RAM maxes out at 16GB. Then there are the issues with the extra space needed for DDR, meaning it becomes a major redesign rather than simply an update. None of those issues even accounts for the delays in Intel’s chip, meaning Apple hasn’t had sufficient time to design a product around it. The delays have likely increased since Intel surely needed to make design changes to nullify the Meltdown bug.

    I’m looking for a 13′ without touchbar and an improved keyboard.

    With those 2 things, I’ll be happy.
