Points Highlighted:

  • The stabilizer can comprise a pivotal mechanism having a pivot point. The first position of the magnetic structure can be located on a first side of the pivot point, and the second position of the magnetic structure can be located on a second side of the pivot point, with the second side being opposite the pivot point relative to the first side. In the second position, the magnetic structure can draw a portion of the stabilizer toward the base layer, with the portion of the stabilizer being positioned opposite the pivot point relative to the base layer when the stabilizer is in the raised configuration.

  • The magnetic structure can draw the stabilizer from the raised configuration to the lowered configuration upon movement of the magnetic structure from the first position to the second position.

The patent figures below illustrate the keyboard of a MacBook in a normal position when opened and ready for typing and then the MacBook in a closed position with the keyboard in a retracted position.
