At this point, I would need Apple to abandon the current MacBook keyboard design to even consider buying a new MacBook. I wouldn’t even mind if they simply reverted to a previous reliable design.

@cdevroe Grant, it should not be necessary, but this could be an alternative to not buying an MBP. Has worked well for me on a Late 2016 model for years: store.gouppercase.com/products/...

@cdevroe I already have one so it's too late for me. Even when it's working fine, I have never used a keyboard I disliked more. Of course mine's not working fine now (again).

@macgreg I'm using a Dell laptop currently. But I'm thinking of returning to the Mac this year. But I'd really like to see them make a big update in order to do so.

@jack I was on a screenshare with a friend recently that has this keyboard and I was so frustrated for him as he was trying to type. I can't imagine how it must be to use one daily.

@cdevroe My dad was up a few weeks ago and he has my old 13" Pro, and I had to use it to set somethings up for him and I found that keyboard worse than the latest generation one.

@matthew Meaning the keys didn't work at all?

@cdevroe meaning I prefer the latest generation keyboard, the older one didn’t feel nice to use at all

@matthew I'm sure there are those that prefer the feel of the new keyboards. However, the reliability of them is far more important than that.
