The keyboard has 2 keys with defects - see below - but both keys function perfectly.

[Note: The 2 white spots - to the left of the mouse pad - are mere artifacts or picture defects and do not exist]

 

2 keyboard defects exist but both are only aesthetic defects as both keys function perfectly:

 

The left CTRL [Control] key has a cigarrete burn but functions

 

The BACKSPACE key has a shallow [not deep] cigarrette burn but functions. More than a burn, it is really a mere stain.
