The 16-inch MacBook Pro
3

Here is a mini-review of the new 16" MBP. (Thanks to TidBITS for the link.)

The most interesting part for me is info about the new keyboard and the chart that details the reduction in portable Mac key travel since the Powerbook era. . . The 16" MBP has double the key travel of the infamous "butterfly" keyboards (1mm vs. .5mm) but it still isn't much. (A Filco mechanical keyboard provides 4mm. My Leopold FC200RT/AB has a similar amount of travel.)

I'm reserving judgment until I have had the opportunity to test the new keyboard. But in my experience More Travel Is Better and I find it hard to imagine that an additional .5mm is going to make a big difference to me. . . YMMV, of course.
