Apple has updated its proprietary MacBook family. Every MacBook Pro 2019 has a new-generation keyboard with a redesigned butterfly, a signature key mount that differs from the classic scissors. In the new family of MacBooks, Apple developers have again attempted to solve the problem of ridding the branded keyboards of the problem for which Apple laptops have been "famous" since 2015.
What has changed
MacBooks of the entire family have undergone changes, including 13- and 15-inch models. Their appearance has remained the same, mainly the modernization has affected their "insides". All laptops received modern 8- and 9th-generation Intel Core chipsets. Keyboards with the updated Butterfly mechanism are installed by default in MacBook 2019.
Most of all, the 15-inch MacBook Pro 2019 has changed in both basic and top-end configurations. The simplest laptop assembly was complemented by a six-core Intel Core i7-9750 with support for a maximum frequency of 4.5 GHz. The next more powerful configuration received an eight-core Core i9-9980H, and the premium assembly went to Intel Core i9-9980HK (8 cores, frequency up to 5 GHz). From now on, the corporation considers the top 15-inch Apple MacBook Pro laptop to be the most productive over the entire history of the family. In addition, the 15-inch model is equipped with 16 or 32 GB of RAM and an internal SSD of 256 GB or more.
The 2019 13-inch MacBooks are packed with 8th Gen Intel quad-cores. Depending on the build, different models received a Core i5-8365 and a Core i7-8665U. The RAM has a capacity of 8 to 16 GB. One of the chipset modules is responsible for video processing - a discrete card is not provided.
Since the very first introduction of Butterfly technology in keyboard, MacBook Pro has had occasional key issues. Instead of the traditional scissor mechanism found in most laptops, MacBook keys are fixed in a slightly different way. At the same time, Apple itself calls the "butterfly" an improved version of the usual fastening.
"Butterfly" has a slightly modified principle of operation, which helped to reduce the trajectory of the buttons when pressed and, in general, to reduce the thickness of the keyboard when compared with analogs. Butterfly technology allows the buttons to operate reliably, even if pressed on its edges, however, the mechanism is not protected from shortcomings, including possible breakage due to foreign particles.
Butterfly was first used in branded MacBooks in 2015, and almost immediately, a number of users faced sticky keys, and sometimes failure after dust or other contaminants got into the mechanism. Since then, the company's engineers have been trying to solve this problem for the next four years. In the current 2019 MacBook family, developers have once again come up with a way to get rid of this forever. Apple did not disclose details of the updated butterfly, clarifying that now the mechanism uses a different material.
