I was one of the first batch, and got one of the devices with a dodgy keyboard. A few days ago Robin emailed me to say he was sending a replacement "keyboard mat". This is the silicone sheet that sits under the keys, forming dome springs, membrane switches and a soft end-of-travel stop for the keys.

It arrived quickly, I replaced it quickly, and now I'm very happy indeed. It honestly feels like a completely different machine.

Comparing the original and replacement keyboard mat, I haven't been able to see any difference between them, so I'm not surprised that they slipped through QA. (That said, the finished keyboard should have been caught.)

If your keyboard is wobbly or sticks, let them know and be patient.

And just because there are people moaning about customer service, I'll add my tuppence worth and say that I'm very impressed that they got this thing made. I don't mind waiting for responses, and they resolved my issue in a reasonable timeframe. Fitting a replacement part is very much part of the crowdfunding experience that I expected.

When using the Notes application (I can't remember if I've seen it elsewhere), there's a huge chunk of the screen missing. The bottom 80% or so of the screen is just white blank space, so I can only see a small sliver of the app. Quitting notes and starting again doesn't help.

Has anyone else seen this? Is there a fix?

EDIT: Pressing escape makes it go away. Not a real solution or or explanation though, as it comes back.

Has anyone been courageous enough to do a teardown yet? I feel squeamish just taking the cover off, but I'd love to see the insides. Especially the battery and how to remove the hinge and bottom cover.
