Apple Inc (AAPL.O) launched an updated version of its MacBook Pro on Monday, with custom keyboards as the laptop line was criticized for typing-related issues while improving performance and adding storage.
Apple said http://pdf.reuters.com/htmlnews/htmlnews.asp?i=43059c3bf0e37541&u=urn:newsml:reuters.com:20200504:nBw5Kf6n4a its new MacBook Pro line-up was available to order and priced at $ 1,299, while the education-focused model costs $ 1,199. MacBooks account for 9% of the company’s total sales.
The new keyboard follows the “scissors” mechanism that is more common in the industry. The iPhone maker switched back to the mechanism and threw out the & # 39; butterfly & # 39; keyboards, after complaining of sticky, unresponsive keys and keystrokes that could not register when small amounts of dust or debris lodged under or accumulated in keys.
