Saw this up in JB-Hifi the other day, and holy shit, this is the worst keyboard I've ever used.
How can you macfags possibly defend this?
I barely ever use macs, but when I do, I struggle with the CTRL button for a good 10 minutes.
Apparently, the CTRL button is not used for anything, and if you want to copy/paste/new tab etc. you have to press that weird 'apple' symbol.
i actually liked the keyboard. After owning a black switch mechanical that one seemed super nice and comfy. now i got the chiclet thinkpad and its nice and all, but that keyboard was lovely to use. like touching the future.
who the fuck was asking for a laptop thinner than the macbook air?
"oh thank god it's thinner, now I can fit it in the exact same sized bag, but it's fragile and has a shitty keyboard too!"
I'd buy one if I could. Just look at it. It's fucking light. It does more things than a tablet and due to its' small motherboard, it fits a lot more battery.
Apple is fucking genius, y'all niggas just can't see it yet.
For you it doesn't. But who are you anyway? As if they care about the few people that think a little further. If they say it's thinner than something else people will buy it, without even knowing if the specs are better. That's how it works, anon. I know that human stupidity can be frustrating sometimes, but it can also mean more money.

Command is used for executing commands in applications like copy, paste, etc.
Control is used for controlling the window manager by switching workspaces or processes, or controlling processes in the terminal by sending signals.
Historically things like ctrl+C were already used for sending SIGTERM or using other functionality in terminal emulators, so its kind of natural that you wouldn't use them in a different way now. As a result you can still painlessly copy-paste in terminal emulators on OSX, without all those horrible issues you have on windows when attempting to do that.
everyone wants a good computer. Mac users are the only ones that get one though. Anyone buying from their wallet is buying trash. Surface pro is great though, but Windows has no apps
get these things:
wet one a little and rub over keyboard. Congratulations, you have a brand new keyboard
I have a MacBook Pro and it did take me a while to get used to the keyboard but now I'm pretty quick.
It's a laptop keyboard after all - I'm slower on it than I am on my desktop PC but probably no slower than on my previous Asus laptop.
m8, you weren't there, have you ever used one?
When i saw the keyboard, i thought "well this sure looks flat, it surely can't be as bad to type on that it looks, right?" so i tried it out and it was worse then i expected, it was fucking terrible, literally worst 0/10 keyboard i had ever typed on.
>It's a laptop keyboard after all
That's no excuse for a shitty keyboard.
Shitloads of people are buying them, bro.
People just want a smaller, lighter computer, with all day battery life.
Check out the PC laptops at CES this year, all their thin and light portables are basically ripping off the design, because people want them.
>1.5mm for each key, so when I press a key it's instantaneous. Not like your shitty mechanical key with 10mm.
Typing for long periods is so much easier with less key travel, and the Macbook has keys that are a great size, give great feedback, and is generally pleasant to use.
I wouldn't use it for gaming or anything anywhere close to that, but I wouldn't use a Core-M 1.3Ghz machine to do any kind of gaming.
you can charge it with a usb port. so the power brick can be way smaller, and you can also charge it of standard battery packs.
I won't go a step backwards on CPU performance on my current laptop, but the battery life is similar, the screen is great, why not make it thin as fuck and eliminate the power brick? I'll definitely be buying something like it when my MBA gets slow
I went with a mate to suss out some laptops that would be suitable for uni for him. The keyboard is fucking horrific. It is honestly worse than using a touchscreen on a tablet, at least those things have built in vibration feedback. This shit fucking doesn't. They didn't even need to make it this fucking thin. Fuck man.
>Windows has no apps
>mfw I was so close to fall for the bait
yay let's type on air
no seriously HOW can anyone "like" this kind of keyboard.
I suppose any kind of on-screen keyboard is better ... BECAUSE YOU DON'T EXPECT FEEDBACK FROM AN OSK (except vibration)
new macbook --> facebook-machine !
