Hey guys,
my MacBook Pro arrived.

When the laptop is closed, you click the button which is near the trackpad to open it (I hope you know which button I'm talking about). That button on my laptop is kind of "scratchy" and when you click it it makes a little squeaky sound. It's not soft and it's fairly hard to push in.

Is this normal?

Also (not related to button), on the top left side of the space bar, there is a little black smudge. Can this be wiped or is it permanent?

Thanks,
Jeremy

No it's not. Sounds like the button assembly may need to be cleaned out or replaced. Is this a refurbished unit?

Only one way to find out....

If your question is whether a smudge should be there or not, then no, it's supposed to be silver and clean

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
