    Hello,
    I Recently bought a 2013 13inch Macbook Air and when I pressed down on the Launchpad key it wouldn't push in all the way.I looked at the key more and noticed a little silver object under. After lifting up the key and shaking the laptop a little I finally got the object out from under the key. Can anybody tell me what the object is?
    Thankyou

    Heres a photo of the object: 20130718_145201.jpg

    Yes, you've linked from a gMail or something similar right? We can't view your Google account.

    Just use tinypic.com to upload the photo. Or attach it to the forum post.

    Looks like a rivet or screw head. I don't think it's anything to worry about but idk.

    Thats a small screw - the same type they use in the internals of iPods and iPhones and such. Possibly came lose from inside the MB - I'd take it to Apple so they can pop it open and check.

    Unless you are 10000000% sure you won't damage anything, DONT look yourself. Would be best to have Apple look so if something is wrong, they'll fix/replace it and you won't have to explain anything.
