For those who have been heeding the news long adequate, there's a great opportunity that you've presumably learned of all the horrors that the keyboard on MacBook laptops are giving its users.

These features will allow the upcoming keyboard to address issues most consumers complain about, BGR noted. We'll be crossing our fingers that Kuo is correct so that we can soon say an unceremonious farewell to the troubled butterfly keyboard.
