    Hi guys, I own a macbook pro 15" early 2011 that I recently bought for college, I've been content with it so far, however I am a little bit concerned about its power button. It is generally difficult to press and when is only responsive when depressed fully, as in I when press it down, nothing happens until I put a little more force to depress the button entirely. It is a minor annoyance. Are all macbook pros built like this? Should I go to my Apple Store to get it checked out?

    If you bought it winter 2011 (how??) then you should be able to take your macbook back to the store so they can fix it

    It definitely should not be hard to press. Take it to Apple.

    Thanks! Do you think it would be an easy repair? The problem could just be that the button is too stiff from being brand new? It's still functional... I would hate to trade this one in for a dud.
