    My ?/ key came off. I havent gotten to drive 20 miles to an apple store to get a new key, so I'm just hitting the silicone plunger with my finger, but now the plunger is tearing at the base... this is not good, i might have to get the whole damn keyboard replaced if it falls off :wtc:

    You'll be ok, I just got a key replaced on my powerbook recently and he just replaced the whole thing, silicone piece included. Don't sweat it.

    Well...whose bit of bad planning was that? Go buy a VW to match your Mac; they get great gas mileage, and they're easier to park in the city.

    Do Apple stores have replacement keys in stock? My MBP is only a month old and my "3" key just popped off and one of the clips won't reattach.

    20 miles there, 20 miles back = 40 miles

    13 miles per gallon,

    40/13 = about 3

    it will take 3 gallons to get there and back :hsugh:

    Thats like 6 bucks in gas, quit your bitchin' and get off your lazy ass. :wtf:

    sorry about the thread resurrection. I searched for "lost key" and figured I'd rather boost this thread than start a new one.
