    I have a new wireless keyboard and I'm experiencing some wobble in the bottom right corner. Whenever I press a key that's close to the bottom right the keyboard wobbles ever so slightly.

    Does anyone else experience this problem or is it just me? Yes, I did try other surfaces because at first I thought my table is not straight.

    I just "relieved" my brother fom his 3 battery bluetooth wireless keyboard and it is working great for me (actually testing it out in Windows 7 64-bit) while waithing for my 17" 2011 MBP to arrive this week.

    Personally this thing is anyting but wobbly (seems pretty solidly built).

    Are you pounding the thing to death to make it wobble?

    Haha definitely not pressing it hard. Even just gently pressing the bottom right corner and it moves up and down. I guess one of the feet is off.

    Weird that it's in the opposite side of the batteries and I thought maybe those were making it heavier and therefore it wobbled on one side. Seems that's not the case, and it's just a defect. Will be taking it back for an exchange.

    Mine wobbles. I folded a piece of paper and taped it to the bottom. It was just a mm or so of a wobble so it wasnt that hard to fix.

    I sure can :D. But wanted to see if it's a common problem or not. Maybe the counterbalance from the batteries has something to do with it. Guess not.

    You shouldn't have to fix it like that though. Apple would exchange that you for easily.

    Exactly. Just got an exchange at the Apple store and this one is very stable. I guess the old one was either bent a bit or one of the feet was off.
