For most consumers in 2019, it’ll be a Macbook Pro that gets the job done much better than earlier models. The updated model includes a return to a widely missed feature: the scissor-switch keyboard. The “V”-shaped butterfly keys seen in the 2015 and newer models were notorious for easily breaking, attracting dirt and debris, and feeling sticky.” The new Magic Keyboard in the 2019 model includes a physical Escape key, positioned just to the left of the Touch Bar.

The laptop also comes equipped with six speakers and brand new microphones. TechCrunch noted that the “crisper highs” and “deeper bass” of the new speakers make them a good fit for watching movies.
