If I haven’t mentioned it lately, thanks to all you early adopters. You guys get the fun job of finding all the slight wrinkles in new Apple products before the rest of us. Case in point, the keyboard and trackpad on the new 13in Retina MacBook Pro launched last week.

According to an Apple support document posted on Wednesday, the input devices on the brand spanking new MacBook Pro may become “unresponsive”, which is a fancy way of saying ‘no worky so good’. Fortunately, you only need those for little tasks like controlling your computer, so no big deal. The 15in MacBook Pro seems to be unaffected, so if you decided to opt for one of those, good on you.

The company’s working on an update that should fix this tantrum-like behaviour, but in the meantime, Apple suggests that those who run into this issue close the computer’s display for around a minute, and then open it again. Which I guess is the 21st century equivalent of: “Have you tried restarting it?”
