The way the top function keys line up now is so satisfying.
Is it just me or does most (if not all) single letters (and numbers) are not perfectly center-aligned? They appear a bit off to the right.
Most notably, to me, they're using the new San Francisco font they designed for the watch.
And now I'm feeling nostalgic about my first MacBook Pro keyboard
I obviously haven't used the keyboard yet, but I don't understand the decision for the ESC button. Why did they enlarge it? By doing that the mapping is totally off, since the F keys are now half a key more to the right than the number keys.
On my keyboard I can count that when I go one key above 1 I can dim down the brightness of the screen. It's fast an reliable. Now I have to factor in the size of the ESC key. Is the key so important to make it that big? I personally never had problems reaching that key since it's in the far left corner and that's how I can't miss it.
Edit: Upon further inspection I now see that at least they are "reliably" half a key to the right. On the old keyboards the distance grew bit by bit up until to F11, where it actually is half a key off.
It looks like someone hated the space above the left/right arrows. Nice move IMO.
I love how they reduced the gap between the keys. I have always found it awkward.
The right alignment of control, option, and command on the left side of the spacebar... I can't unsee it.
That looks intentional, given that the other side has command + option aligned to the left side (towards the center/spacebar).
But where is the polarity? The spacebar? fn still goes to the left?
Also, this is hilarious nitpicking.
Go ahead and switch them out... just did on mine — took under 10 seconds to make the switch: http://shn.mn/a9pK
That's cool, you don't really look at a keyboard when you're typing.
I don't look at the keyboard when I'm typing so these little changes don't make much difference to me. Kind of why the nitpicking is funny? I guess? No?
