[title] Taking a peek at the keyboard
[* black] We slowly peel away the keyboard backlight, hoping to find Magic underneath.
[* black] The backlight assembly consists of a flexible diffuser, which carries light from LEDs along the edges. Flexible diffusers are common, but this one looks [|specially etched|new_window=true], possibly to maximize brightness and evenness.

[* black] '''[|Nooooo|new_window=true]! '''[guide|111509|Once again|stepid=213439|new_window=true], the keyboard assembly is riveted down. Though the switches are likely less vulnerable to crumbly assailants, the keyboard itself isn't any more repairable than the Butterfly boards.
[* black] It's basically 2016 all over again: we've got a new keyboard married to a non-serviceable design, with only Apple's word that it "won't break." And this one isn't even a part of the [|Keyboard Service Program], so ... : /
