    I'm not complaining. The key works as it should do - I just thought it was a bit weird :confused:


    Anyone else notice this on theirs/seen it before?

    that must be really annoying if you want to use Excel or Mathematica :D

    Is weird though, i dont have a macbook so can not verify it you are one of a kind or not.

    Well, I know it should be ( not ), so it's no big deal really - it's just strange that it's like that!

    A typo? :eek:

    Proof that they work as normal:D

    If it were my macbook i would be proud that it was different.

    Hey if someone nicks it then it is a great claim that it is yours as they will not notice the backwards bracket. Every cloud.

    That's what I want to find out - if anyone else has one with a similar "issue" :D

    It's a replacement keyboard that I got fitted this week. I can't imagine it's an isolated incident. Surely others with new Macbooks would have it too?

    Maybe... it's Apple's drive to make the world a happier place?

    Yea, so what? It's how things are/work when you can't remove the keyboard like the MBPs.

    The key cap can certainly be replaced. It's too bad you can't easily pull the whole keyboard out and put it on eBay though. :D There are suckahs-a-plenty on there. :)

    Anyone prepared to put in a bid in advance? :D

    But has anyone else with a new MB noticed if theirs is similar?

    And that may be what happened here. Don't German keyboards have () on 8/9 instead of 9/0?

    That baby is going to sell for millions!

    Isn't that what happens when stamps get misprinted?
