    This is my first mac and i'm not complaining as much as i'm just making sure this is normal...

    If I look at the keyboard any way other than from DIRECTLY above, I can see under the keys and all the light, is this normal? my spacebar sags a little in the middle and therefore keeps the light from shining out underneath it, but i can see the light underneath everywhere else. Just wanna make sure my keys aren't too high or anything. And man do they seem delicate, seems like i could just flick them right off! haha not that I would every try to :rolleyes:

    but either way, I'm loving the MBP! still of course learning how to use it so there is a definite learning curve, but that's the fun part!

    Yes that is normal. It's called LightPeak technology which is probably why you are getting some light leakage.

    That's also how they make the MBP so LightWeight.

    But the lighting under the keys is normal.

    I assume that's a joke right? But yes, you will see the backlight around the keys
