Not super relevant, but figured I’d post this here as there may be others going through similar issues.
Like many with the 2016/2017 MBP keyboards, I’ve had a nightmare of a time with it. Going through 3 repairs in the course of a month last year. When I went in for my 4th one they told me they could swap out the machine for a new one to see if that would help.
I didn’t take them up on the offer as the keyboard is fucked by design and that would just give me the headache of setting my computer up from scratch.
Fastforward almost a year later and I’ve gone back in with a fucked keyboard again, and it turns out that the offer still holds but since they no longer have 2017 machines, I’m getting a new 2018 machine. On top of that, it’s the equivalent spec (I got the upgraded CPU option originally, so they juiced up the one they have on order too).
They were really accommodating too, in that I’m in the UK but the laptop was originally purchased in the US. So they had to process it in a manner from what they normally do, but they managed in the end.
So if you have a 2016/2017 machine and have had a few keyboard repairs, it’s worth knowing that may be an option.
