    Got a question:
    Picked up a 13" MBP with 8 gb yesterday. Computer runs great.

    But my question is about the Caps Lock key. Does it need more pressure than the rest of the keys on the keyboard? It seems like sometimes I can push it and it won't go on, and I'm not being overtly soft when I push the key. When I type pretty normally it doesn't go on all the time. But when I pay attention to it, it almost always seems to go on.

    I just read that it's an intentional design from Apple to prevent people from accidentally pushing it. Guess I'm too used to the almost 5 year old Macbook I used until yesterday!

    Caps Lock needs more pressure to activate

    I have found exactly the same thing with my new macbook pro 13"! The caps lock key needs more pressure to activate then the others.

    Where did you find out that it was an apple design?
