    I'm currently using a 2.4 Penryn Macbook Pro 15"

    It's a dark room and the keyboard is lit up.

    Here's the problem, ALL but the "arrows" (bottom right) of the keyboard are 100% lit up and that particular area on the bottom right is noticeably DIMMER....

    To test, have your keyboard light on and the keyboard should be at your neck level when viewing

    Can anyone duplicate this and say that its normal so I don't have to bring it to Apple tomorrow?

    the keyboard's backlight is 4 LED's in the centre of the whole keyboard..
    it's most probably dimmer in the corners cause the light has to travel further...
    if your not happy, return it to apple - but i bet you they'll say it's in spec!

    BTW, if you learn to touch type, you won't need the backlight. :p
