Apple has dropped its unpopular butterfly keyboard mechanism after unveiling the new 13-inch Mac Book Pro featuring a Magic Keyboard for an improved typing experience.

Elsewhere, the new MacBook Pro retains many familiar features, including its Thunderbolt 3 / USB-C connectors, Touch Bar, Touch ID fingerprint sensor, as well as the return of a physical Esc key.

The Magic Keyboard is the most appealing update for most customers. Apple worked quickly to cycle out the butterfly keyboard, reverting back to reliable scissor switches for the latest 16-inch MacBook Pro, and a Magic Keyboard for the Mac Book Air which came out in March.

The entry-level model of the new Mac Book costs $1,299. Its impressive 256GB of storage is a significant step up from the 128GB available in previous models. It starts with 8GB of RAM and costs $100 to upgrade to 16GB. Apple has previously charged $200 for the same upgrade.

The new 13-inch MacBook Pro is available today for order on Apple’s website and will arrive in select Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Resellers later this week. Education customers can save $100 on the base model’s price.
