tnetroP : You unplugged the keyboard and plugged it back in. That's now a counterfeit keyboard.

Atilolzz : Man, you just have to LOVE Apple after watching like 100 videos by Louis Such a consumer Friendly company!

W N : Liquids? Oh Apple has a dongle for that!

digitalradiohacker : You unplugged the keyboard. It is now a PC.

Samy Hacker : dude you should definitely make a video compilation about the 'special things' apple does, to rise awareness. cuz the amount of times i heard you say "apple however they special" is ridiculous. your could name the video "the truth about apple products".

opl500 : "Apple however is special"

CptHuggyFace : Looks like you'll never run out of work.

Gerald Stephanus : (Wet macbook motherboard) *Dry it out* guess what? *IT'S A PC NOW*

Jonathan Carter : Some cheap Dell laptops also have the power button on the keyboard. Horrible design antipattern.

Captain Heat : “apple: think different, not better”

illuminati : Louis, you are asking a company that gives zero F's about there customers to do something that could benefit their customers. Louis, you already know that answer.

sieve5 : This is pure insanity.

opl500 : Oh it doesn't stop with the hardware. Try writing code for one sometime. The window coordinate system for instance, they do it the way nobody else does it.

EpicHedgehog : Till now I was like: "if I had the money, all my stuff would have been apple" but the more of your videos I watch, the more I think that I actually don't want to support such a company no matter how good the ecosystem is or what features the products have... shame on you apple, get your shit together....

Johnny From Stovner : MacToddlers will surely defend this. It's a lot harder to change the keyboard on a Macbook compared to all other computers but that's alright because it's a feature and it's fine that a problem with one key on the keyboard makes the entire thing dead. Don't know why anyone would buy a Applel product, it seems everyone who does is either a teenager or someone with a serious stockholm syndrome.

Laharl Krichevskoy : Its like they design things so they will fail!..........next put the ssd chip next to the usb ports and make them flimsy so that if you bump into one, it cracks the nand chip in half, and also somehow shorting the charger line to the cpu and the gpu.

Против Глобал : When you have a GDP higher than Canada, you don't concern yourself about little things like that...

cicada : Bro are you serious? That'll add an extra $3 to the cost of production. Times that by 30 million laptops sold, and you're looking at a 90 million dollar loss.

Григорий Ховер : Thanks to Mr.Rossmann i will never buy Apple products now, too expensive to gamble and too useless.

Neiva : MFW all my friends who had Macbooks from the 2012-14 era have all died while my 2012 $800 AUD Toshiba is still going strong. Battery probably needs a change but it's still a beast with an i7-3610QM (4C/8T), 7670M GPU and I put a 120gb SSD inside. They still laugh at me about it but whatever, they've spent probably 5-7x the amount of money on just laptops over the years. Also my Gaming PC is still a beast. i7-2600k @ 4.6Ghz, GTX 1070, 16GB RAM, 1440p screen. This included, still less than these JUST LAPTOP guys. Sorry about the rant, I find it just funny how pretentious Apple fans are.

Mac Guy3135 : I’ve been a victim of this. I blame Tim Cook. Put the on off button where it used to be... ON ITS OWN.

w0ttheh3ll : many lenovo thinkpads have the power button integrated into the keyboard like the T60, X220, X230, T420, T430, T520, T530 of course those keyboards are spill resistant and easily user replaceable

Thelosouvlakia : You are supposed to be using Macbooks only in Cleanrooms! That's what Steve would want!

にゃあエイリアンMeowAlien : I never notice this before, nice one Louis

Classic Game Hacking : Apple... Pioneers on how to not to do hardware engineering and how to screw up users.

NeoS Ek : Ill come by again in a few hours to see what reasoning apple fanboys have come up with to defend this bullsh1ttery. Im getting excited just thinking about it!

Wald Geist : Although I would never buy an Apple product, the power button thing is not really Apple exclusive. All my Sandy Bridge Thinkpads (X220, T420, T520, W520) also have the power button on the keyboard. Not sure about my mom's T400 but I think it's the same on that one too. On the other hand those keyboards are protected against liquid damage and replaced within 2 minutes in case you damage them.

Doug The Tech Guy : I can't believe people still buy Apple products.... why.. why.. why

Toaster Chicken : I've dropped a SINGLE drop of pop on an apple keyboard and rendered it useless.

MrSandman127 : Did they implement this before or after they put in the 'Planned Obsolescence' module? XD

Ahmed Al-Qader : Glad you decided simplify all the mess from yesterday's stream, it was fun to watch btw.

Viralshadow : My acer laptop also has all the keys as one keyboard which includes the power button BUT looking on the bottom of the keys, it seems to be waterproof, the place where the keys are is sealed off, and the key presses against a sealed off smaller button underneath, im guessing that was too hard for apple to think of.

hassaization : My Xiaomi notebook air has the power button on the keyboard lol, unfortunately they copied the bad things too. but hey, replaceable and expandable storage (1 nvme and 1 msata, with the msata unpopulates ootb) and it's less than half the price so suck it apple,

jackblackwhole : something something maximize profit.

Marcel Samyn : Also, that ThinkPad you showed won't give a shit about a drop of water on the keyboard (or a splash)—it'll just keep working as if nothing happened ;)

Daniel Karaś : Teachers at school recently got new laptops made by acer and they have power integrated on keyboard as well. I don't know the exact model though

MrBitviper : ummm it's called a feature louis!!!... computer jesus himself designed it that way. it's made like this so people can go out and buy fabulous new apple products

Lam : This is an industry standard though. Lots of laptops have power button in the keyboard nowadays, from Asus through Dell to Xiaomi (but I haven't seen a single Lenovo with this YET). So it's not like "Apple is special".

Mike Turk : More "power" to you :))

AWal : My ThinkPad R61i also has the power button installed with the keyboard...On the other hand, when my power button starting shorting out, all I had to do was open a few labeled screws and swap it out with a replacement that was readily available and quite easy to order (not to mention cheap given how many years out this one is, along with all the computer recycler surplus). Here's to good luck towards the fair repair bill, so that we can at least have a means of getting replacement A-stock top cases. 😆

zx8401ztv : Now how silly is that, the bad thing is i saw another laptop with the same idea :-(

Sideshow Bob : An apple a day..... is great for business if you own a repair shop! I love the black gloves, they make you look like Batman, so professional!

DrathVader : In all fairness, xx20 and older series ThinkPads have a power button integrated into the keyboard. At the same time in the 10+ years I've been using thinkpads I've never had any issue with this.

Lanvin Kgoale : And yet some professionals are still slaves to apple products.😒

myrang3r : Asus has this horrible design in their zenbooks as well. My problem was what if I accidentally miss the backspace or delete button, I didn't even think that it would cripple the machine.

Alfonce Jean : asus has been having the same shit for years. I don't like apple but I have to admit it they are not the only one with that keyboard shit.

vistastructions : Acer also does this

Mike Vogelius : I personally really like that simple and elegant solution of combining the already existing keyboard and power button, and yes of course there can be some challenged when the keyboard breaks ;) but it is in the form of reducing and combining still the best and most elegant solution. The worst of all is that if I was the designer, I would really have a difficulty time of decided whatever to completely remove the Power button, as you know it from the iPod, or to keep it xD just because I love this solution so much. It's a bit like the MagSafe charging port, it just has to die along with any other ports that not are the new universal USB-C, but at the same time, I also love this MagSafe charging port so much that it would be very hard for me to take such a choice. But again soon or later there someone need to take that responsibility to promote a more simple and elegant world where all ports are of the same type.

Yueh Tewb : This is just ONE of dozens of basic engineering flaws in apple products. The reason why they do the keyboard power key thing isn't "slimming down", it's the fact that CNCing in a seperate power key hole, and a building in a separate power key line would cost about $1.25 more (in my estimation). Which doesn't sound like a lot of money compared to an apple product.... but you have to realize that if they save $1.25 on 5 million laptops that’s 6.25 million directly into execs pockets. Or 6.25 million towards an advertising campaign that can chase out all competitors from a country the size of Portugal or Vietnam. Because of cost cutting measures like this, Apple banks 20% profits while HP banks 5% profits, but the product HP makes is infinitely better engineered (despite Whitman/fiorina mismanagement).
