New MacBook features a 'full-size keyboard'
it is an all new keyboard.
As you move to a thinner design it took an entirely new kind of invention to make it, a beautiful keyboard.
So the team studied how current keyboard technology works.
Here's a slow motion video of a customer typing on a standard keyboard and as you see, as the keys get pressed they're a bit wobbly.
In fact, if you press them on the side, they start to bottom out.
That's because they're based on a mechanism called a scissor mechanism.
And there was a time when that was great, but now there's something new.
Our team invented a butterfly mechanism.
This butterfly mechanism is built with a single assembly.
And it's supported by a stainless steel dome switch.
And that all adds up to a key that is much more precise and accurate.
In fact, it's four times more stable than that scissor mechanism, yet is 40% thinner, allowing us to make a thinner keyboard.
And we also make the key cap larger, make it even easier to strike and get a beautiful typing experience.
So this is a slow motion video of typing on the keyboard, on the new MacBook.
The keys are much more precise, much more accurate, even if you strike them on the side.
