    My macbook pro retina F2 key makes a squeaking sound!?

    Hello All,

    My brand new Macbook Pro Retina's F2 key makes an awful squeaking sound when i press it.... The sound got even worse when the macbook ran hot and i had to presse the key for multiple times....... Now it seems like even my F3 key is slowly dying when my macbook is under stress and i am pressing it.
    I looks like you can not use the F keys when your macbook is really warm cause i speeds up the life span of the keys insanely.:(

    Does anyone else have this problem? Its really bothering cause its a brand new computer..... I called apple and they told me to go to a service centre :-( but i need this machine for my work and a service centre takes the minimum of 10 work days to repair it......... :mad:

    What can i do....

    Kind Regards Cor.

    This is definitely not how it should be. Take it back to where you got it from and demand a replacement.

    @Peuvlo, thanx i went to the Apple store friday and the repaired it with a whole new top case. I got a call yesterday evening that it was repaired. I am gonna pick it up later today so hopefully they fixed it good.

    I wonder what they really did cause the battery is glued to the topcase... so do i also have a new battery now? did they swap the motherboard and took out the fans just to install everything again in the new topcase?

    I sure hope the did a good job cause i have bad experiences with other companies repairing laptops.... leaving away screws making scratches etc.....

    Anyways i am gonna pick it up after work and we will see....

    My rMBP left shift key is squeaky too! Went in to the Apple store and they ordered a whole new top case w/ battery, just like they did for you. I'm dropping it off tomorrow and hopefully it'll solve this embarrassing issue.

    How did it work out for you?
