Buy for a Quieter Keyboard

Apple's faced backlash over the butterfly keyboard in the MacBook Pro, but things don't dramatically change this year. 

The 2018 MacBook Pro keyboard is a third generation of this key style, and Apple is making a big deal about it being quieter than the older generations. 

The 2016 MacBook Pro keyboard is obnoxiously loud, so this is a very good step, though we don't know exactly how much quieter it is until we get to go hands on with the new model. 

Apple keeps the same style of mechanism, which offers a more stable key, but you can expect the same very limited key travel, which means you will bottom out and feel like you are typing into solid metal pretty often.

    “Not everyone needs the best processor or 32GB of RAM, but even if you opt for a base or mid-line 2018 MacBook Pro, it’s going to last you longer and serve you better than buying an older model if you keep your notebook until it cannot do the work you need anymore.”

    Can you update the SSD on a post-2015 MacBook? Are you sure your keyboard will still even work in two more years? I’d say the post-2015 models have been the most un-upgradable, un-serviceable, and (because of keyboard issues) least reliable Macs in over 15 years. Would not recommend until Apple gets its head out of its ass and starts making top-tier laptops for professionals again.
