    I know it's not a big deal, but my 17" i5 keyboard has an annoyance – one key (the %/5 one) is at least double the brightness of any of the others. It shines through like a beacon, as if all the others have some kind of diffusing material under the key while this one is just raw, much stronger light.
    Solution... I turn off the backlit keyboard. Simple enough. But has anyone else noticed this rogue light on their keyboard? It's no minor difference and very distracting when the keyboard is lit.

    Exactly the same problem with my 17 MBP. Its a small thing but it drives me nuts :)
