Has Apple changed the keyboard on these in the past 4-5 years?

Haven't been in the market for a laptop for a while, but I kinda miss the Apple OS. Just really disliked the keyboard on the models a few years back.

Thanks

For $20 more at Microcenter, get the 2019 version....True Tone screen and slightly better keyboard design (apparently...and at least keyboard has 4 year warranty). Some say processor is slower on 2019 but hard to believe especially in real world tests.

Ya, the specs are shameful for the price but there's no reasoning with teens in high school and college where all their friends are in the Apple ecosystem too.

I pricematched as well. Also, used my Best Buy tax exempt Quick Card (which expires on the 17th.... got it in just in time!) Being delivered tomorrow.

Wow, so did I. Except my Quick Card had actually expired. I emailed my state tax exempt certificate and they refunded me the tax right away. By the way, BB is starting a new tax exempt process later this month...you have to resubmit all your paperwork.

The Pro version with similar specs has a Quad core i5 processor versus the Dual core i5 in the Air. The need for a quad core setup is more circumstantial and is only useful to those that do more intensive work on their laptop. As well, the Pro has a slightly better graphics card that would be useful for those that play higher quality games and those that do high end video editing. Also, the Pro has the Touch Bar which some people like and others do not use...to each their own. Otherwise, the Air is a bit slimmer, lighter, and has a slightly better battery life for the average user. Finally, the average user will not be able to notice a difference in the experience of each of these laptops.
