    and I have slanted keys... and I gotta say...


    Its slanted, but its not omg ugly. Its not even mildly bad, I don't even notice it unless i look at it flat.

    Come on, people need other stuff to complain besides slanted keys. This is NOT a problem.

    I agree, people find the smallest, most insignificant things to bitch about on these forums. People don't even notice little things like this unless you point it out. I wouldn't bother complaining about something unless it hinders the functionality of the device. For example I have a very very slightly uneven iphone screen, but you can't even tell unless you hold it flat and look at it super close. I don't even bother thinking about it, my phone still works fine.

    kudos to the OP for not whining about something stupid. :D it's a relief for a change.

    lol honestly had i not read about it here i would have never noticed, that being said I agree that it's really silly i could barely notice it and it doesnt bother me at all, but thats just my personal opinion. Some people are very anal about their devices and in a way i kind of understand how some people would demand perfection from apple since apple charges a premium for their products. This particular small unnoticeable defect does not affect me enough to whine about it and even less to return it to apple.

    All it is (at least on mine) is that the keys are leaning to one side. It's on my all of my F keys. I have no complaints whatsoever. I think people are getting a little too anal about it IMHO.

    What's interesting is that since this thing is loaded with gestures on the trackpad, I find that I'm hardly using my keyboard. Obviously I don't type much.

    I've noticed this on mine too but it's nothing that I keep looking at to the point of it annoying me. I think the backlight actually makes it look worse than it is.

    people are just caught up in the excitement and thrill of new apple product, the new trend, style.. that they just want some attention or some form of condolence so they wouldn't feel left out they all gang up like in forums and start bitching like little girls crying for their barbies. :D ..anyways im getting mine in a couple of hours so i will see what all the fuss is about with those defects they keep bitching about.

    Im a PC my entire life and this is my first mac Hp pavilion was a few dollars less than the macbook and a s a former pc user i learnt to fix it yourself or deal with it if my brand new macbook gots slanted keys i will have two choices :D

    If I paid $700 for this new Macbook Maybe it wouldn't bother me but $1600 there should be no excuse! Seriously almost $2000 and little things like that should not be happening, If I had money to blow on another one maybe I wouldn't be whining but I say for the price we have the right

    From what I see here, its basically the left side of the key is slightly lower then the right side of the key. (each key)

    Apple's a luxury item, like if you buy a BMW or Benz or Acura or Infiniti or Lexus. You find flaws there, why can't Apple have any? just because of the price doesn't mean its flaw-proof.

    Seriously. I remember when the BMW E46 M3 came out and people were blowing engines like crazy (okay, exaggerated, but there were quite a few :D).

    You won't ever find a perfect company that puts out perfect products. Apple included.
