Prediction: when the new “functional” keyboards come to the entire MacBook lineup, we’re gonna have a couple quarters of exploding Mac sales. Years of pent up demand from those of us who have been waiting on the sidelines. https://t.co/C11oIC0YKk— Brian McCullough (@brianmcc) November 13, 2019
In other Apple news, I'm happy that they've finally accepted defeat with the butterfly keyboard! The new 16" MacBook has reverted to scissor-style keys, A PHYSICAL ESC BUTTON!!, and a fixed arrow key arrangement. Halle-fucking-lujah! https://t.co/SXpoENxOi3— DHH (@dhh) November 13, 2019
Oh wow good speakers? Nice https://t.co/aNBiLt9xLG— Joshua Topolsky (@joshuatopolsky) November 13, 2019
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
It's also not a great look that in order to get a functional keyboard, you have to spend at least $2,400. But I accept that change takes time. And surely now the long Apple nightmare that was the butterfly keyboard will be over in a few months. https://t.co/t6AhKYMsBC— DHH (@dhh) November 13, 2019

Apple are saying that the new MacBook Pro has microphones that can be used ‘for creating superclean podcasts or music recordings on the go’— Myke Hurley (@imyke) November 13, 2019
So we put that to the test:https://t.co/aL7lmnDl8z pic.twitter.com/IX3wk8aqKf

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 16-inch MacBook Pro: SHIT YES! https://t.co/FSShG2dYFf— Marco Arment (@marcoarment) November 13, 2019
Just realized that the MacBook Pro 16" is out. And it's getting better reviews just because of the keyboard changes itself. https://t.co/MKKpA3fJIG— Sahil Khan (@sahilk) November 13, 2019

HUGE episode of Upgrade:— Myke Hurley (@imyke) November 13, 2019
There’s a NEW 16-inch MacBook Pro, with a Magic Keyboard!
And we have an EXCLUSIVE interview with Shruti Haldea, Apple’s MacBook Pro product manager!
If you want to know everything about this machine, we’ve got you covered:https://t.co/aL7lmnDl8z pic.twitter.com/dMdYIbvJSU
This episode of Upgrade may be the closest thing we’re going to get for a 'presentation' of this product from Apple.— Myke Hurley (@imyke) November 13, 2019
So if you want to hear what Apple has to say about this machine, make sure you listen to our interview.
Of course I'd marry the Mac. We've been in a committed relationship for almost 20 years. We’re kindergarten sweethearts. @_upgradefm has a phenomenal exclusive on her newest fall look. Hot: https://t.co/uIXyIXbZvc https://t.co/iw40PLJ7SZ— Alex Cox (@AlexCox) 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.

Easy to bring the new 16-inch MacBook Pro’s price up when the optional 8TB SSD alone is (slightly) more expensive than the entire base computer. https://t.co/bXqJTf762G pic.twitter.com/L5eDHCU2Pl— Jeremy Horwitz (@horwitz) 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
still waiting for my apology https://t.co/6uOcF1oC2N— Casey Johnston (@caseyjohnston) November 13, 2019
Here’s my hands-on with Apple’s new 16-inch MacBook Pro. Keyboard: Good. Esc key: Good. Inverted T arrow keys: Good. Thermals: Optimistic. Speakers: Whoa. Oh yeah right Screen: good. Touchbar: still there. https://t.co/tx2gRylhRP pic.twitter.com/lWunyWgi2X— Dieter Bohn (@backlon) 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
THIS “the lack of an SD card slot when there’s this much space to work with seems downright spiteful.” https://t.co/vQb3Loqlj6 pic.twitter.com/4m7u9nA1vS— Arielle Duhaime-Ross (@adrs) November 13, 2019
There's a new MacBook Pro, and it has a 16-inch display and Apple has gone back to scissor switches for the keyboard. It still has the Touch Bar, though https://t.co/In7qItNzFz pic.twitter.com/kRrfyS6OCf— Tom Warren (@tomwarren) November 13, 2019
TFW “it has a good keyboard” is both a feature and difficult to believe https://t.co/WysuVLe447— Owen Williams ⚡ (@ow) November 13, 2019
Also: #MacPro is coming December. Rack-mount looks hot. Wheels look wheely. Perf is obscene. And there’s a new 8TB option.— Rene Ritchie (@reneritchie) November 13, 2019
Any questions on the 16-MBP or New MP?
Let me know, lots more to come! https://t.co/aKrb0ISGrl

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
