After three significant revisions, Apple’s butterfly keyswitches remain as controversial and unreliable as ever. At best, they’re a compromise acceptable only on the ultra-thin 12” MacBook, and only if nothing else fits. They have no place in Apple’s mainstream or pro computers.

The MacBook Pro must return to scissor keyswitches. If Apple only changes one thing about the next MacBook Pro, it should be this. It’s far more important than anything else on this list._

As an owner of a new Touch bar MacBook Pro and encountering the keyboard problem (Thank you Apple Care!), I definitely agree that the hardware team must accept that the current butterfly design has a critical flaw. But they should iterate on it rather than going back to the previous one.

If Apple will not build touch-screen Macs, they should make sure their keyboards are flawless.
