my new MacBook Air 2012 started to make weird clicking noises on the C-Key. When you click the key in the lower part and release it, the key gets stuck for a split second and then comes all the way back up.


Is this a hardware failure and do I need to return it?



MacBook Air (13-inch, Mid 2012), Mac OS X (10.7.4)

    I have this issue as well on my '12 air. It doesn't so much get stuck but it ccccccccccc (sorry, I was testing it) does emit a slight click and it almost sounds like there's a bit of crunchy food behind it (though there certainly isn't). I'm hoping it will be ok, as it isn't consistently happening at the moment... but I'd like to hear if others are having this issue as well.


    Edit: Can you add the 11" to your tags as well, as this is the model I have?
