It reveals Scissor Switch keyboard from 16-inch Macbook Pro Teardown by iFixit

Macintosh computers or just ‘Macbooks’ have made a revolutionary change in the field of laptop computers over several decades, despite them being priced high they are worth it because of their powerful processor, build quality, regular updates by the developers with patches and bug fixes, etc.

The new lineup of macs introduced by Apple Inc. is keeping the legacy of macintosh alive, the reason people prefer mac over windows laptop is also because of its light and compact design, better displays, and even a powerful and neat operating system which gets regularly updated by its developers.

The 16″ Macbook Pro is the latest offering by Apple, and it’s a treat for editors and all MacBook lovers. It’s got a 16-inch Retina display, which is gorgeous and has 500 nits for brightness, it also has 8TB SSD storage which makes it blazing fast and this is only scratching the surface. Recently, team IFIXIT has teardown the 16-inch MacBook Pro for its examination, and boy, there’s a lot to say about the new MacBook Pro.

At the starting of their dismantling, we can see the new keyboard, which is the Scissor Switch Magic keyboard of the MacBook Pro in front of us, as shown in the picture. According to Apple, the new magic keyboard flaunts a very clarified scissor mechanism for receptive and an enjoyable typing experience. The Touch Bar here puts high-powered shortcuts on the front and center, and Touch ID provides fast authentication. A dedicated Escape key allows quick switching between modes and views. And the inverted-T arrow keys enable fluid navigation whether you’re flying through lines of code, navigating spreadsheets, or gaming.

Advantage of the new magical keyboard is that the keys can be removed easily without any hassle which is very convenient for the MacBook users for removing dust and debris which gets collected underneath the keyboard with constant day to day usage unlike the previous versions of the MacBook keyboards in which you have to take a full keyboard body replacement.

Further down the road, the cover is off from the back of the MacBook, and we can see the internals. By looking at the internals, you can see the space where there is the 100 watt-hour battery (made up of four individual cells), and there is some space around the battery by seeing which iFixit says that the newer models of the MacBook Pro can be more compact and graceful. If you look at the layout of the new MacBook closely resembles its previous versions, the SSD and RAM are bundled into the logic board, so they are also not replaceable in the latest iteration of Macintosh by Apple Inc.
