Keep your keyboard's keys from getting worn out
Authored by: ms_t_rie on May 01, '13 06:17:43AM

I had the same problem with my old Powerbook and the previous Macbook Pro, but I also had long nails at the time, which is what I thought was causing the issue. I've had my current Macbook Pro (with the black keys) for a few years without anything happening to the keys, I figured it was the nails causing the issue, since I decided to cut them down. Though I don't doubt the key material is helping as well, key design is definitely a factor. I've never had keys from the older keyboards from the 386 PCs on up, just on laptops. I haven't used any of the newer external keyboards, so I can't say for sure on those.
