New Acer c7 Chromebook, keyboard normal?

Hello everyone,

I just bought a new Acer Chromebook and there's a lot to like about it, but the keyboard just doesn't seem right. The "o" key sounds different than the others and the other keys around it are moving when the key is depressed. It also doesn't always register. So when I type the word "to" sometimes I only get the T.

There also seems to be a light depression around where the "m" and "j" keys are (there are further sunk into the keyboard than the other keys, though not by much. Is this normal or could this be a manufacturing defect?

Other than that I'm really digging chrome so far. If these keyboard issues are normal I might jump to the Samsung or something.

Thanks!

These anomalies are not present on my keyboard, exchange it immediately if possible. The o key would drive me up a wall. Did you get the upgraded model with more memory and larger battery, or the standard C7?

I enjoy carrying mine about when I travel, but still have not found a good Aero shaped backpack with Led lights, and it must be Neon Colored, well ventilated & lightweight for longer bicycle rides that occasionally extend into the dark of the evenings.
