It is both a compliment and a condemnation of Apple that I am extremely excited about spending thousands of dollars on a laptop because it has a functioning keyboard.— Ben Thompson (@benthompson) November 13, 2019
Lots of important subtle points in @gruber’s overview (“de-Jony-Ive-ification” anyone?)https://t.co/7ApVK1fs3i
What I'm less happy about is the fact that they continue to deny and deflect on the root cause. A more humble, mature, and kind Apple would have taken THAT crisis as an opportunity to turn the page, and actually own their mistakes. We want Apple to succeed! But only by doing righ— DHH (@dhh) November 13, 2019

The butterfly keyboard era is over! Apple announces the new 16-inch MacBook Pro, featuring a new keyboard and a lot more. And @jsnell has an exclusive interview with the MacBook Pro product manager, Shruti Haldea.https://t.co/3zYSbAMmTV pic.twitter.com/YjGvDvaqbT— Upgrade (@_upgradefm) November 13, 2019
The screen on the new MacBook Pro is less than 4% larger than the current 15.4 inch. So it’s really going to be about the higher resolution, impressive speakers, noise cancelling microphones and of course the all new keyboard (similar to the iMac external Magic Keyboard).— Mark Gurman (@markgurman) November 13, 2019
Wow, Apples defacto head of public relations saying the equivalent of schools need to pay 5x more to get MacBooks for their kids vs Chromebooks doesn't come off well. Being at Apple for awhile you forget that not everyone has unlimited budgets. Schools need help not chiding ffs https://t.co/GbGNaIGckb— Seth Weintraub (@llsethj) November 13, 2019
And also, more importantly: they didn’t listen for four years, never apologized, and left people spending thousands on computers they now need to replace already— Owen Williams ⚡ (@ow) November 13, 2019
Forgive me for not being enthused about Apple’s ‘hail mary’ computer when they sold broken models for four years while insisting there was no problem. Difficult to celebrate them ‘listening’ at all when it shouldn’t have happened in the first place— Owen Williams ⚡ (@ow) November 13, 2019
The 16" MBP's default display setting is a simulated 1792x1120 at 2X, scaled to the actual native panel resolution of 3072x1920.— Marco Arment (@marcoarment) November 13, 2019
One step "larger" and it's 1536x960 at true, unscaled 2X on the panel.
The "most space" option is 2048x1280. https://t.co/aOEffH1SmT pic.twitter.com/mgH93YPwue
I think Apple pretty much nailed it with the 16-inch MacBook Pro. They really addressed a ton of complaints with the scissor keyboard, physical Esc key, inverse-T arrow keys, plus it is faster, has longer battery life, has more RAM and storage, and still starts at $2,399.— Joe Rossignol (@rsgnl) November 13, 2019

Apple in 2017: Y'all are crazy, there's nothing wrong with that keyboard.— Will Oremus (@WillOremus) November 13, 2019
2018: We've identified a minor flaw in our keyboard and have fixed it, it's fine now.
2019: LOL jk yeah we knew the keyboard was a disaster all along, we just couldn't admit it until we had a new one.
Apple’s marketing spin on these new MacBook Pros is all about “listening to “customers,” but it’s pretty important to note that @caseyjohnston and @joannastern are the actual people who highlighted the problems with the previous keyboards over and over again in their reporting— nilay patel (@reckless) November 13, 2019
It just hit me that, across the PowerBook and MacBook lineups, Apple has now made models in 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, and 17-inch sizes.— toot.cafe/@chartier (@chartier) November 13, 2019
Make an 18-inch MacBook you cowards.
It really is remarkable that Apple’s Mac strategy this year has been “sorry about that, here’s the thing you wanted”— nilay patel (@reckless) November 13, 2019
