I bought a new 2.4 macbook yesterday. It has a terrible keyboard delay. I turned key repeat rate all the way up to fast, delay until repeat down to short, and "slow keys" are not enabled in universal.

Its so bad that in order to delete more than two words, i have to highlight the text and delete it all at once.

And the delay isnt every few words, its every single word i type and i delete. This is really bugging me now... anyone else have this issue on the new macbooks?

Any solutions? Do you think i should take it back? Thanks.

Which applications are you typing in? If it's in Microsoft Word, then I would suggest the issue is with the application rather than the hardware.

Try opening Textedit and typing there.
