    Hi, I've had my Macbook Pro for just over teo months. The issue is difficult to describe but I'll try.

    The left 'Shift' and 'Tab' keys make a wierd pop sound when pressed, as though they are caught on something once pressed.

    Once the Mac warms up during use the problem seems to go away until the next time I switch it on.

    Does anyone else have this issue or is it just a case of taking the keys off and put them back on?

    Thanks for any feedback.

    I've seen laptops come from thew factory with tiny screws stuck under a key, so it's possible it's just something along those lines. Since it's easy to break keys when popping them off, it would probably be better to have a service center try this for you, since they're on the hook if it breaks instead of you.
