    I closed my lid last night after watching a movie and woke up this morning to my "C" key a lil tilted and diving under my "D" and "F" key. The key is useable when u type hard but is obviously gonna fall off soon.

    Take it to the AppleStore (provided they have stock) they'll replace the broken key without much hassle. I had five keys replaced in one seating, took less than a hour!! - Apple knows the white plastic bits under the keys will and do break!!

    Ehh, they may declare this as "misuse" but you would definitely be at an advantage to just take it in the store and tell the genius exactly what happened. The keys are very rocky I know, you may want to explain that to them. If you are very nice and don't go in demanding things they will usually either fix you up in the store, or send it off if need be.

    It may be worth it

    Two hours is a drive. However, it may be worth it since your keys need a "tune up." I have replaced keys before and it was not a problem. Yet sending it in may result in someone saying "Hey this is abuse."

    they will replace it, whether by individual keys from spare keyboards they have in the back or by ordering an entirely new keyboard.

    If you're up to it, it really isn't that hard to fix it yourself, very small pieces though, don't lose (break) them... ;)

    Why? Does swapping HD's void Applecare? That seems a little extreme (but probably true :rolleyes:)
