Apple patent on future MacBook raised keyboard and screen….
Apple Drives Away From Your Intel MacBook Pro
Looking at Apple’s latest patent, there could be some major changes in the future. Titled “Linkage assembly for a portable electronic device,” it describes a method to lift up the keyboard of a Mac laptop to a more ergonomically friendly position. Malcolm Owen reports:”
“Rather than creating a kickstand underneath, Apple goes down a more engineered route that involves keeping the main base of the MacBook on the surface that it is resting on. Instead, the top surface of the MacBook can instead raise up.
“Apple envisions the display to raise up along with the keyboard, so it is always in view by the user. The bottom of the display will always meet the top of the keyboard, regardless of how it is raised.”
