    I must have gotten a bread crumb or something under my rMB space key. It doesn't compress fully and registers irregularly. Extremely frustrating typing experience! Any idea how I could remove it? Thanks.

    Had the same thing. Apple is replacing my computer. Might want to setup a Genius Bar appointment.

    i had the same thing happen to me on my left Shift key.. returned the Macbook and bought another one.

    Ordered a Moshi 0.1mm clear keyboard cover.. hopefully that'll stop dirt from getting stuck under the keyboard

    I vacuumed the keyboard which solved the problem. Actually I vacuumed it with my mouth.
