    I have a 2010 unibody Macbook Pro and I just realized the x key is a bit bent. It looks lobsided, almost like the key is popping out. How can I fix this?

    Normal. I have a few keys that aren't perfectly straight/levelled/flat. Some seem to be tilting one way but not a lot. You'd have to actually look at it at eye level to tell the difference.

    That's exactly what this is but this is very noticeable. The x key doesn't work as well.

    Can you actually pop these keys off? I played with it a little but I didn't want to push it

    Yeah you can pop it off just be gentle.

    A while back my then 2 year old nephew popped off an arrow key while we were playing in photo booth, snapped back into place easily. Just be as gentle as a two year old.
