    Hey guys, I have just purchased an RMBP and it makes this strange click noise when lightly shaken left-right. I think it might be the keys. Is it normal and do you also experience it?

    Maybe it's a Hobbit?

    or maybe it could be a loose key on the keyboard?

    I noticed my command keys have a clicky sound when I tap my finger on them. (tap, not press down)

    is the key exactly in the middle of the key-hole in the aluminium casing, or if you look closely is it not perfectly aligned and scratching against the side?

    I'm just wondering because i had this same issue (sorry for stealing thread)

    Both of my Command keys are centered..
    If your key/s are lopsided, and you're under warranty, I would bring it in, and ask them to replace the plastic key clip... this usually will fix a lopsided key. (had this problem on my 2009 cMBP)


    The only reason I haven't brought my rMBP in, is because all the other keys are perfect, and both command keys make the "clicky" sound when tapped, so I assume it's just the way the key clip was made?
