    Kind of an interesting take off of the creaky air threads:

    My keys squeak a bit when i type. It's not a big deal, but im curious if other people notice this.

    My spacebar key sounds weird (plastic wrap sound) if I move around my finger around it. I know mine isn't the only one, I've heard the same sound with two different MBAs in Best Buy. Mine was louder though.

    Mine have no squeak. I'd probably exchange it if it did..

    So...I was typing, and it became very apparent suddenly (at the same tie, remembering that I read a thread title about squeaky keyboards...)...

    my spacebar squeaks! :'(

    i saw another thread where a guy brought his in and got it replaced. It's not a huge deal for me, but I think i'll bring it in and see what they say.

    Take it back ASAP.

    Mine is fine, but my brothers squeaked loudly. The genius was quick to replace it, saying he'd seen it before.

    The new one is just like mine, perfectly silent.

    I'd do just that but the screen has no gradient effect, uniform and looks perfect. Got the Samsung SSD and the machine is very quite and stays cool for the most part. IF the sound worsens over time, then I'll leave it in the store so they replace whatever they have to.
