A few years ago, Apple attempted to reinvent the laptop keyboard by introducing what they called the butterfly switch mechanism. This was supposed to result in an even thinner keyboard.

One of the reasons why mechanical keyboards aren’t a present in laptops is because of the design of the switch that is simply too bulky for a lot of laptops. Sure, there are some laptops that do feature mechanical keyboards, but for the most part they still tend to feel rather bulky because even though it uses a low-profile switch, it still isn’t exactly very flat/thin.
