The keyboard could be â€śnoticeablyâ€ť changed, cramming the keys together to take up less area. There are also a few key changes â€” the power button, for instance, has moved to the left-hand upper corner, to the left of the escape key. The travel on the trackpad has also reportedly been removed in the interest of keeping the laptop slim.

hasnâ€™tÂ been touched in years and will not work with a machine with a single USB Type-C port.Â
