    I have a rMB and the right cursor key seems stuck in the down position but still works if I press hard enough. Is this something that can be repaired at the Apple Store Genius Bar?

    Certainly they will accept the machine for repair. I had a keyboard replaced and they had to send the machine offsite. So it took a few days to complete the repair.

    Remember to backup your data before taking the rMB into the store.

    They indeed have shipped it out to be repaired, including a new battery because it didn't pass the combined test. Hope to get it back this week.

    Have you tried using compressed air around the keys? A couple of times something small got stuck on the edge of certain keys, but giving them a few good taps and using the compressed air did the trick for me..

    I've had a few keys get stuck and then kind of unstuck. I like this keyboard but it has been a pain in that regard. As of right now, my L key is stuck something awful. It registers but man I've got to kind of whack it a bit. I'm going to try the compressed air trick.

    EDIT: Christ, I just blew around the L key, WITH MY MOUTH, and the key is unstuck. LOLOLOLOL!
