    13" 2011 mba - anyone else? Does it settle down? I had a different air before this one (still 2011) but it didn't have this issue and overall this keyboard feels much more spongy.

    Anyone else experiencing this?

    Yup! Exact problem, it drove me insane...try writing a paper where every second you hear a squeak...not so apparent in an office, SUPER apparent at home where it's quiet.

    Anyways long story short, I took it to Apple (it was within the 14 days) and the guy basically said sometimes the keyboards aren't aligned perfectly and there is a small metal pin that is out of alignment.

    Took it in the back, less than 10minutes later I had a non-squeaking SPACEBAR.

    Hope that helps. I don't think the "being out of the 14 day" period is a big deal, it's a manufacturing problem so you're covered. Take it in, be nice, explain the problem and they should help.
