    Look at that!
    That's my Apple keyboard USB (2 months old)...

    Is the same for you, guys with a white keyboard?

    I think it's quite strange......

    Thanks for any help.

    Re: Apple keyboard

    What do you want to know?:confused: It looks a little faded, but all keyboards fade over time.

    assuming this is your question, the keys do fade, but usually not that much. is it left in sunlight for prolonged periods of time? i've had my white keyboard for 6 months, and none of the keys have faded, especially those that i don't use that often. has it always been like that?

    Every key is a bit faded (f1, f2, f3,... too)......
    But not so much.

    My keyboard is only 2 months old.

    Should I call Apple?

    Anyway my keyboard is on my desk and hasn't been left in sunlight for long periods....

    Thanks for your help.

    If it's really faded that fast in two months, call apple and ask them about it. The volume key shouldn't fade faster than other keys, unless you're constantly fiddling with the volume.

    Apple may or may not consider this a reason to replace the keyboard [yet]. If they turn down a replacement request now, wait until you have keys that are almost faded totally or until your warranty is about a month from expiring and try again.

    I've had a white keyboard for almost a year and it doesn't look anywhere near as faded as yours seems to be.

    Thanks again.

    That is really faded for two months of use. I use my Apple Pro keyboard that I bout about a year and a half ago, and it has yet to show signs of fading. All of the key labels are still close to perfect. The only thing is that the space bad has become shiny from use, so, no, it definitely should not fade that quickly.
