    I just noticed that on my UMBP's backspace key feels a little more crankier and louder than the other keys. Also, when i do pressure and slide it up and down, it feels like if it is scratching beneath the surface. Is it me or is anyone noticing it on the backspace key?

    No problems here, does it affect functionality?

    I had this issue for a while... then the Delete key popped off and I had to get the keyboard replaced (it was missing a piece of plastic needed to keep the key securely in place.

    Just my experience. Weird that we both have/had delete key problems.

    yup the delete key lol sorry. If it isn't normal, should I do something about it before it gets worse? By the way it does not affect with functionality.

    edit: Just to add, the delete key feels much like the space key. (The space key does not have that problem though)

    You can take it to the Apple store if it bothers you.
