MacRumors today is reporting proof that the new MacBook Pro keyboard is in fact designed to resist dust better than the previous versions. Apple has advertised that the new keyboard is simply quieter, but experts have said that Apple may simply be trying to avoid admitting that the previous keyboards have had issues.
The information that MacRumors has obtained consists of documents sent to service shops that prepare them for dealing with future repairs. Documents state that the membrane is to “prevent debris from entering the butterfly mechanism.
This is good news for those considering buying a new MacBook Pro but wary because recent models have had frequent keyboard issues.
