Same here

Macbook 2.2Ghz, brand new.

2 months old now, 2 months of trouble, and Apple is of no help.

1) Boot Camp driver for the 2.2Ghz model had faulty keyboard driver, mapping was off. They issued a fix four weeks later, fine.
2) Keyboard died intermittently, OS X or Windows, doesn't matter
3) Keyboard is "squeaking"!
4) Touchpad...was touchy, until they fixed it (again), it moved all over the place as I typed...
5) Now Boot Camp update broke the keyboard again.

Why did I get this crap! Who said Apple "just works"? My ass...

Re: Same here

What, it "only just" works ;)

That said, we have well over 100 Apple laptops at work, and have an almost surprisingly low failure rate.
