    Just got a new MBA 2011 13" and I have noticed that my left arrow key squeaks when pressing it and the key itself takes a bit more to press.

    Anybody else with this problem and will it get better over time? I hope I don't have to exchange it only because of this annoying key.

    I had the exact same thing with the down key on 2010 macbook air,
    it got a bit better over time but the movement on it is slightly different then the other keys...
    but it works 100% so why go through the hassle to replace it when you risk something happening to it

    I have removed the key, took it apart from the plastic underneath, put it all together and it is working now without any squeaking. :)
