Hello.

Does anyone still prefer the old Macbook Pros' keyboards more? 13" 2020
(A2251 model; MWP62LL/A; Intel) vs. 13" 9,2 April/mid-2012; MD102ll/A
model; unibody, Intel) as an example. The older ones feel nicer and
easier to type. :/

Thank you for reading and hopefully answering. :)

Nope. I prefer my current 16-inch MacBook Pro's keyboard, which matches
closely with the extended keyboard on my 2020 Mac Pro tower. On both
keyboards, key travel is tight and resistance is light and responsive,
which means I can type faster with less effort - a win win! : ) Sorry!
