    I just got this keyboard from the Apple store on Sunday and after two days use I'm pretty happy with it. It looks way cool, has a nice typing feel, and I even prefer the white keys to the black ones in my MacBook Pro.

    Anyway, everything about this keyboard screams "professional" with the exception of the on/off switch on the right hand side. It feels loose if I rub my finger on it. Is this normal? If it is I think I could live with it but if it's not, I'd want to replace it.

    Anyone with one of these care to comment?

    Dunno but mine feels pretty solid. I would say as long as it functions correctly u should be good.

    Mine feels the same - loose.

    Never really thought anything of it since I never turn it off. :D

    Thanks to everyone that responded. I'm going to head over to the Apple Store tomorrow to see if there's a problem going on here.

    I did think of something... when I asked about whether the power button was loose or not I didn't specify exactly what I meant. When I tap my power button it's pretty solid... but if I rub my finger over it... it feels just slightly loose. Ya know... like when trying to seat something that doesn't quite fit the size of the container.

    I hope that makes things more clear.

    One more post with a solid power switch. I rubbed it and everything.

    ...I had the BT keyboard for 2 weeks while I was trying to get it to work on a netbook I had running winXP but it wouldn't work... on my iMac it was great but I didn't need a BT keyboard on my stationary machine...back it went... and BTW it was solid...
