    I just got my new MBP and the first thing I noticed was one of the keys, the "s" key was slanting to the right, right top at the time. If I tap that corner specifically the key will literally fall off. This is the way I type and I never had any problem with my old 2009 MBP. Any help or suggestions?

    If they didn't change is the latest version (I don't think they did), there's a little X frame shaped clip design that allows the keys to move. The X frame can detach from a given key. Lining up the key and applying a fair amount of pressure should snap it back onto the frame. If not, just bring it to an Apple store.

    This video will give you a good idea of what's going on underneath the key.

    It seems to be the clip underneath but as far as I can tell it is identical to a working one. I swapped the clip out with the "a" key and now the "a" key has the problem so I know it's the clip.

    Bingo, yep, just bring it to the Apple store and they'll fix you up. :)
