    Was just looking at my MBP, and i realised my H key was wonky, at first i thought the key had been turned a little by typing or something, but after looking closer, the clear stamped area wasnt straight!

    So, this is no way affects usability, but is it worth mentioning it next time i go to the store? or is it on all MBP's?

    Mines straight. Though I have had to replace my enter and delete keys cause they both broke off.

    To be honest, I think someone's a bit obsessed!

    It's only one key... and as you say, it's working fine!!
    I know apple won't return it cause it's functional...

    But dude, you should see the UK keyboards,
    near enough all the keys are wonky!
    Especially the return/enter key!! :eek:

    I expect that, if you show it to a Genius, they'll fix it right in front of you in about thirty seconds.

    I doubt it... cause it's only cosmetic, doesn't affect operation of the system. Besides the OP says it works fine!

    UK keyboards have a Return/Enter key that spans two rows, wide at the top and narrow on the bottom, also... there's a £ above the three!

    The US version looks like a shorter Shift key, a "#" above the three - since "£" aint gonna be useful!

    How's your return key? Is that physically wonky? Mine was.... annoyed the hell outta me!! though the print was squared on.

    Some of us are just Perfectionists -
    we seems to spot the smallest flaw, littlest imperfections.. it's a curse! :D
    Though, Apple is fairly fallible.

    The rest of the keyboard is fine, and sometimes i look at my keyboard when typing, and i have done about 6000 words in the last 2 days, so been staring at my keyboard lots.
