    I've had my MBA 1.8 since the beginning

    Just recently my my caps lock and mouse pad button doesn't work

    1. Caps lock

    It technically does work, but I have to press the dang thing like 4 or 5 times until the green dot lights up on it

    2. Mouse pad button

    This also technically does work, but not properly. It is currently semi-broke. It's hard for me to explain in words. So I'll will try my best here. It's almost like a teeter-totter, I.E. the bar is never level. One side is ALWAYS raised and the other is ALWAYS lowered.

    If I click on the raised part of the mouse pad, it will make a clicking sound

    Anyone else having these problems?

    Or any advice?

    I do not currently have apple care, but still have some time left to purchase it. Is that my only option to get this fix?

    You don't need AppleCare, as you're covered by the standard one-year warranty. Do you have an Apple Store near you? If so, I'd make appointment at the Genius Bar there and have them look at it for you.

    Will they just replace it with a new one or fix it for me?

    I can't imagine it being too difficult to fix a caps lock light/button and a mouse pad button

    They'll likely have to send it out for repair...it'll take a few days.
