    They're eveidently so confident in their fix that the 2019 models are already part of the keyboard replacement program.

    EDIT:

    '40% faster*', presumably to compensate for the [up to] 40% performance hit apple's spectredownmeltwhatever mitigations reportedly cause.


    *for the 30 seconds it can maintain those speeds without throttling

    Well, at least they don't intend to stonewall customers for two years with "our keyboard is fine, you're just using it wrong" accusations like the initial crapstorm.

    No doubt there is a myriad other glaring design flaws in the new model that they can do it with...
