    I just noticed that the L key on my Macbook Pro is damaged. It still works fine but has a mini "crater" in the middle. I suspect the fact that a small speaker fell from the shelf and bounced on the keyboard a couple of weeks ago might explain it...

    Rather than pay the £170+VAT that one company wants for the entire keyboard to be replaced, I'd rather buy the individual key.

    So...

    Would this be correct? To the same product quality/standards as my other keys? Also, how easy is it to replace without damaging the surrounding ones? I have a 6 key that could also be replaced too..

    FWIW the machine is within twelve months warranty but as this is accidental damage...

    That link didn't show any keys for the Macbook Pro, just the Macbook.

    I wonder why the "A" key is so much more than the rest?

    Despite the breadcrumb link showing I was looking at a page filed under "Alu PowerBook G4 & MacBook Pro" ?

    How can you tell the keys are definitely not Macbook Pro keys?

    I guess I was reading it wrong. Yes, it looks like those will work on the MBP.
