New Wireless Keyboard - Squeaky Keys?

Howdy all, I'm much enjoying my new i7, no dead pixels, no freezing, no screen blinking or other visual problems, etc., but I have a question about the one anomaly I have encountered.

The delete key squeaks annoyingly when I hit it half of the time. Is anyone else experiencing this, or have you experienced it with other Macs? Something that goes away as the keyboard breaks in? (I don't want to return it if this will go away or it's something I can address easily on my own but the squeak is pretty annoying.)

sounds weird. I just bought one of the new apple wireless keyboards about a week ago and have no "squeek" of any kind.

it does not use springs so I have no idea what would be sqeeky.

Me too


Same thing is happening with my new Apple Wireless keyboard. I thought I was imagining it / being over sensitive but my delete key definitely squeaks.. and I would know.. i make a lot of mistakes and have to use it very often.

I've only had my keyboard for 4 or 5 days so I'm planning on returning it to the Apple store.
