4 An irreparable keyboard.

From Cupertino they must feel very confident with the inclusion of their new keyboard system. If we follow the script of what iFixit has published regarding the "reparability" of the keyboard of the new MacBook, this is "practically" irreparable. Possibly Apple has its techniques if the time has come to do it, as it has happened so far with the current Macbook. But seeing the failures that occurred in the MacBooks from 2016 to this same 2019, they have not prevented improving the reparability of the keyboard in case of a reoccurrence like the one we suffered. Is this a declaration of intent or a clumsy failure regarding the new keyboard?

Apple does not improve the reparability of the keyboard of the new MacBook, which suggests that they feel very confident with the new system.

5 ?Compatibility? with the Desktop Magic Keyboard.

Since the inclusion of the Touch Bar in the MacBook, all the computers that had it lose the physical escape key, since this was touch in the same Touch Bar. Apple has listened to its users and returned it as a physical key. Also the rectangular module of the arrow keys has been replaced by a complete inverted T system, leaving a more natural use experience.
