I currently have a Late 2013 MBP, the base i5 with 8GB/256GB. Like most models of that generation, this one was built like a champ and is still running. I had the screen replaced 2 years ago under the delamination extended warranty program. It definitely feels slower now and I am ready to upgrade.
I almost pulled the trigger on one of the 2018 15” models on sale at Best Buy this weekend. They’re one heck of a deal ($2,200 with the student discount) for a 16GB/512GB unit with the upgraded GPU. But that keyboard… I just can’t get past it. I could probably deal with typing on it, but the reliability really has me worried. And while it sounds like they addressed the issues in the 2019 models, it just seems like the butterfly keyboard is a bad idea.
If one of the current 13” MBP models came with a scissors keyboard, I would already own it. Or a 15”. Instead, my 2013 13” still soldiers on.
I have no real reason for starting this thread other than to see if anyone else is similarly waiting for one of the rumored scissor keyboard models.I have to think there are a fair number of us!
