iFixit examines the 16-inch MacBook Pro's 'throwback' keyboard design

  iFixit examines the 16-inch MacBook Pro's 'throwback' keyboard design From the time we spent with Apple's just-announced 16-inch MacBook Pro, it was obvious that the shallow, unreliable butterfly keyboard design was out and scissor switches were back in. (It didn't hurt that Apple has confirmed the changes on the new MacBook Pro's product page.) But naturally, the teardown team at iFixit was bound to get their hands on the 16-inch MacBook Pro and see exactly how its keyboard compares to ones that came before it. Well, they've just published their results -- and just as expected, the new keyboard is nearly identical to the one in the 2015 MacBook Pro as well as Apple's external Bluetooth Magic Keyboard.

As well as the gold - plated keys and chassis, you get a wrist rest which is decked out in a matching gold color. Presumably the device uses the same Cherry MX switches as the original XPG Summoner keyboard , although Adata doesn’t clarify that , or indeed anything about the spec of this peripheral

Here’s a gaming keyboard with a difference – it’s made out of gold, and it costs $10,000 (around £7,700, AU$14,500). No, we’re not making this up…

Adata recently showed off this blinged-up peripheral over at CES 2020, and it’s essentially a gold version of the manufacturer’s XPG Summoner gaming keyboard. The main difference being that the Adata Golden Summoner is 24-carat gold-plated (with aluminium underneath that gold, so it’s one heavy keyboard).

As Anandtech, which spotted this accessory, observed, it’s cold to the touch as you might imagine, so maybe not the most comfy keyboard to rest your fingers on when partaking of your favorite shooter (at least not until you’ve warmed the keys up a bit). Furthermore, it doesn’t look like the lettering on the keys stands out that much.

But this obviously isn’t an exercise in practicality, but rather showing off. The tech world has a long tradition of gold-plated, diamond-studded gadgets that make the mind boggle, but they’re usually phones (or indeed iPhones) – and a golden gaming keyboard is definitely a new one.

Special request

Apparently, though, this wasn’t Adata’s idea, but a request from a customer with a suitably fat wallet – and having made one, the company decided it would manufacture six of them.

As well as the gold-plated keys and chassis, you get a wrist rest which is decked out in a matching gold color.

Presumably the device uses the same Cherry MX switches as the original XPG Summoner keyboard, although Adata doesn’t clarify that, or indeed anything about the spec of this peripheral beyond the materials used in its construction. It appears to be identical to the standard XPG model, even down to the volume roller present top-right.

At any rate, this is clearly the perfect companion peripheral for those who have a golden PC case, gold-framed monitor, and a gold-plated mouse. Oh, and let’s throw in a gold gaming headset while we’re at it, because why not...

Apple's next MacBook upgrades could be coming soon .
Last year's 16-inch MacBook Pro felt a bit like a return to form. While the latest iteration of Apple's flagship laptop didn't address the love-it-or-hate-it (but mostly hate-it) Touch Bar and an obnoxious lack of connectivity, it did have a much better keyboard compared to previous models. The new MacBook Pro replaced finicky butterfly switch keys with new mechanisms that make typing feel more natural and are more resilient to dust and debris. Naturally, one question on Mac users' minds was when Apple would bring the new scissor-switch-equipped keyboard to the 13-inch MacBook Pro and the MacBook Air lineup.
