    I just got my air back after having the keyboard replaced, and I noticed that on the keyboard the letter T is not centered and is more to the left of the key. I was wondering if anyone else notices this on their air or if it was just a bad key that I got. Would this be an easy fix if I wanted it fixed?

    omg.. as mentioned. Post pics! :p

    i would recommend you just look at the screen and not on the keyboard

    also i doubt that they'd consider it a faulty keyboard etc.

    I rarely look at the keyboard but looking at it now it seems that my T looks centered. It's probably just yours

    Those are easy to fix. Take it to an Apple Store. As long as they have the part it'll take less than 10 seconds.

    Wow. That is very weird. You can either have it fixed or keep it and know you have a weird/unique MBA... ;)

    Haha pretty unique... but seriously, does it bother you? If it does, then take it back... but come on, how often are you even looking at the T key?

    Thats a one of a kind you could probably ask an extra 50 bucks for it when you sell it.

    I wish I had that. It'd be nice to have a unique machine like that. It doesn't hinder it's ability to perform in any way, so it's cool.

    Wait, why was your keyboard replaced?

    It was replaced because two of the keys stopped working. The volume up key and the right command key and I think that they replaced the whole keyboard because of it.

    Now I am definitely going to keep it since it has turned into a collectible item. Any offers...I'll start the bidding at $2500. :D

    Yeah because nobody will think it has been damaged and replaced with a generic "T" found off eBay.

    It seems like it is a T key from a foreign keyboard.

    On some keyboards, English letters are displayed to the left of the key and on the same key, a close or equivalent key in the other language.

    I wonder if it is actually one of those just painted over.
