A lot of work has gone into improving the keyboard on production units of the DM41X as this was the Achilles' Heel of these machines.

The new generation of keyboards has been completely reworked. The keys have been redesigned to press on the domes differently and the domes themselves are of a new design.

This brief video shows how responsive the keyboard is now: https://youtu.be/OaKvP8-2iB0
I liked the keyboard on my older DM42 and didn't think I'd like any changes to it. If I like a product, "New and Improved" always seems to ruin it for me. I just got my DM41X today and - WOW! I didn't think the DM42 keyboard could be improved but this keyboard seems just about perfect. There's an ever-so-slight difference in pressure between the center of the Enter (sounds like a song?) and the edges but it never fails to register properly with a press in any position. The only problem I have now is that I simply must buy a new DM42 just to get the new keyboard! My wife is shaking her head and wondering why she ever married me. I know her like a book but I never know what page she's on.

If I buy someone a drink to congratulate them, is it a Mazel Tov cocktail?
