    Okay, got the blackbook today and something looked a bit odd about the keyboard but didn't think much of it.

    Then tonight it hit me... some of the keys are printed off center. The H, J, N, M and comma keys all iook like subscript compared to the rest of the keys.

    It's not a major issue but it does make the keyboard look a bit odd.

    Anyone else noticed this on a new Blackbook?

    That would drive me crazy-- I don't have a new MacBook, but am headed to an Apple store tomorrow, so maybe I will check it out!

    it's not true unless we see some pics! :)

    and no, my new macbook's keyboard does not have this... err... text misalignment.

    Well it's not really obvious on the pic for some reason... :-(

    Not like it's a major issue anyway.

    I can't tell the difference...

    on my new BlackBook, but if yours is slightly off-center, I'd have someone look at it. :cool:

    From the pics, it looks normal, its like that on macbooks and Al thin keyboards, not even on MBP's, its because they print it on them, so the key may have moved in the process and caused it to be like that. and just wondering, why is your command key like that? did they change it again?

    Ummm... pass. I noticed it was different to the pics but I just assumed it must have changed.

    It looks less obvious on the pics for some reason... maybe the angle I took the photo this morning. It's not terrible though. Just struck me as odd when I noticed it.

    The command key is like that on UK keyboards, my SR macbook is the same.

    anyone notice you don't seem to get num lock and the associated keys anymore?
    i'd be well annoyed if i was trying to use the numpad and it didn't exist.

    I was just about to say take it back but I checked my white macbook and strangely enough my "B" is lower than the others LOL.

    I noticed it as i was looking but tbh you cant really tell.

    I would class it as an "inherent feature" and makes every macbook unique :D

    Maybe you could wait till new aluminium MacBooks (or whatever the next revision is) come out, then take it to an Apple Store and make them give you a new one. ;)

    i've inputted small data sets on my macbook using R and not having a dedicated number pad has been a non issue.
