The Macbook Butterfly Keyboard

In 2015, Apple unveiled a new “butterfly” keyboard on its MacBook laptops. The butterfly keyboard mechanism enabled Apple to make their laptops thinner. Apple promotes the butterfly keyboards as more responsive than traditional laptop keyboards.

The Macbook Pro Keyboard Defect

Thousands of consumers have reported that Apple’s new keyboard has resulted in sticky and unresponsive keys.

The lawsuit alleges that Apple’s butterfly keyboard is produced and assembled in such a way that when minimal amounts of dust or debris accumulate under or around a key, keystrokes fail to register. Attempts to fix affected keys require replacing the whole keyboard, which can cost anywhere from $400 to $700.
