Apple announced a new refresh for the Macbook Pro lineup earlier today, featuring faster processors, better graphics, and more storage.

What’s unique about this new release is that Apple has finally decided to stop using the butterfly keyboard, a controversial keyboard design that was plagued with hardware failures in previous models.

The new lineup will instead revert back to the scissor-switch-based keyboard, the same design used in Apple’s Magic Keyboards.
