    Bent key
    My tab key looks like it is sitting lopsided on my keyboard. I have never seen anything like this. Keys usually are straight or broken. It isn't a huge change but it is out of line. It works but my machine is only a month old and bothered me enough to post about.

    Anyone else experience this, or think I should have Apple look at it?

    Might as well take it in. Its free. They'll probably replace the keyboard.

    On my month old white MacBook, the space key is bent. I can barely notice it, and only if I look at it very carefully. The center of the key sits lower than the two sides. I guess I have a hammer like thumb

    I took it in. Apparently this isn't that uncommon. The mounting tabs for the keyboard are near that key and a couple others which occasionally cause the board to flex and the keys appear bent/misaligned.
