This week in my new Macworld column, More Color, I go on at length about the new MacBook keyboard and trackpad and whether they suggest a new Mac standard for input devices:

Welp. Here comes the MacBook, shaking things up. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but unless the MacBook remains a strange outlier, we may be witnessing an end to this era of stability and the beginning of a shake-up in everything we take for granted on the Mac.

You should read the whole article and ponder it deeply, so as a teaser I’ll say that I’m sold on one of these technologies and still up in the air on the other.
