Roger Cheng, interviewing Phil Schiller about the new keyboard design in the 16-inch MacBook Pro:
Will this keyboard find its way to other MacBooks? There are folks who don’t need the power of the MacBook Pro, but may appreciate the tactile experience.
Phil Schiller’s answer:
I can’t say today. We are continuing both keyboard designs.
It will be a sad day in Mac world if the new keyboard doesn’t propagate to all the other models as soon as possible, in their next updates.
I’m personally waiting for the new 13- or 14-inch MacBook Pro but it’s not a Mac I’ll be interested in, if it doesn’t get the new keyboard.
