    I've had my MacBook Pro for a few weeks now and slowly over the past month the keys have started to fail. It started off with my '0' key and has now spread to many other keys. It's taken me like 5 minutes to write this short message because unless I slam the 'n' key it fails. Anyone else experiencing this?

    I'm having a possible issue with the Enter key. It's getting soft and I can't always tell if I pressed it.

    I'm going to setup a Genius Bar appointment next week, I guess. I recommend you do the same.

    Had that happen with my retina macbook keyboard. Try cleaning it with an alcohol pad and compressed air - helped me

    I have issues with my up and down keys right out of the box. Need to put on a ton of pressure for them to work, which interferes with gaming and general navigation. First my speakers blew, now this. This is getting really ***** tiring.

    Started on mine this week. The R key, the U key, the H key, and the X key sometimes register as if I press them more than once. I have an appointment at the Genius Bar on Monday. This is untenable for such and expensive machine. Very disappointed.

    From a relatively few forum posts it's impossible to know the scale of the problem, but I assume Apple will fix it for you and maybe give their suppliers some friendly fire if it's a widespread issue. Whatever, the long-travel keyboards I seem to have golden memories of won't be coming back.
