Ehhhhh...

I like the elimination of the "hinge" problem when it comes to clicks, but I've gotten very used to using the side of my thumb for clicks, which often doesn't register as a click on the 2 because my thumbnail isn't capacitive.

I also have trouble not force touching it.

Maybe I'll get used to it.

I'm not the hugest fan of the new keyboard either. I'm impressed with tactile response for that thin a keyboard, I'd give it a khotar of 1, but still prefer the last gen which I'd give a 3.

For reference, MacBooks used to also have a khotar of 3 (haven't tried the new ones), and a Cherry MX green is a 10 or close to it.

I may just disable force touch.

When I get frustrated at the pad, my inclination is to push harder.

I had the "thunk" set to light for some reason. Switching it to firm has made it more satisfying, and harder to accidentally force touch.
