    Yeah, I'm having a major "what the ****" moment here. I finished installing bootcamp, and when I booted back into OSX, it reads as if the space bar was constantly pressed down. Whats worse is, I can't reset pram/boot into Windows/etc because pressing option at startup is overridden by the spacebar recognized as being down.

    Computer is a week old and there is nothing under the key. Any insight?

    That's really weird, have you tried pressing the spacebar down hard and then releasing it?

    Yes and I removed the key entirely to check the assembly. Clean as a whistle (as to be expected with a week old computer)

    For those interested, sorry, I don't have a solution. I just returned it. Anyone want a $2200 Apple giftcard?
