|Subject:||Laptop keyboard - uneven wear|

I'm have this HP HDX notebook for about a month, and already the keys are
starting to wear out. The "f" key takes about twice as much pressure as the
rest of the keyboard. I had this same problem with my previous dell laptop -
it got to a point where about 6 different keys (especially f and s) would
take more pressure to operate than the rest of the keyboard.
This is very annoying because it means when typing a sentance, I have to
either slow down and remember to hit the 'F' harder, or go back and correct
all the missing letters.
My desktop has a wirless microsoft keyboard that I bought over 5 years ago,
and every key works as well as the day I bought it!
Is this a common problem in laptop keyboards ? I'm guessing it has something
to do with the properties of the silicone pads ?
