    Recently I had come across an issue where keys would magically stop working on the rMB. Specifically it was the A key and the Delete key, I was just seeing if anyone else ran into this issue.

    Fortunately I was in the return period still for Bestbuy and swapped it out for another one, gave up space gray for a silver one. I called Apple and did the whole troubleshooting thing with resetting the SMC and such and it still did not solve the problem either.

    I don't think that word means what you think it means.

    You are aware that there are figurative and literal definitions and usages for words, right? Figuratively speaking, his use of magically is perfectly correct, and this is intuitively understood by even non-native English speakers.

    The key inexplicably stopped working, as if by some dark magic, how is that incorrect usage?

    He was not incorrect, though.

    Stopped working at all ?

    My key was unresponsive if you press the edge of the key.

    I suspect the new keyboard quality is not good at all, and I am worried about this symptom appearing in every macbook sooner or later, even if I get a new one.
