There's a couple of things you could try. First, try removing the key using this method: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpwzUlJtVso make sure you turn the laptop off first. Then clean underneath it with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol. Let it dry and replace the key. If that doesn't work, you may need a new keyboard. You can purchase and replace it yourself if you're up to it. Search iFixit.com for the tutorial on how to replace the keyboard for your specific model.
This is very subjective, but either the MacBook or MacBook Pro because the MacBook Air is more expensive than the Macbook because it is thinner, but does not outperform it.
Now between the MacBook and MacBook Pro there are so general guidelines:
-If price doesn't matter, the MacBook pro is the best Apple laptop because of its RAM and Aluminum body finish, also its Sandy Bridge processors and its new Thunderbult Port.
If price does matter, than there are some general deciding factors:
What do you do? If you work on your MacBook pro using PhotoShop and Movie Editors and a lot of software- the MacBook Pro is what you want. Also if you game, the MacBook pro is awesome.
Is it just for fun? If you want this laptop just for recreational use and not for games requiring heavy processing power for graphics, just get the MacBook.
There isn't a 'delete' button like you'd find on the extended keyboard, if you hold function while pressing backspace it will function as a delete key. (My MacBook's backspace is labeled 'delete' but is a standard backspace.)
Answer: Function + Backspace = Delete

you may have inadvertently set up a keyboard short cut on the delete key... go to your system preference app in the dock. Then select keyboard shortcuts... if you select "default" at the bottom of the window it will revert to the factory shortcuts and eliminate any you may have accidentally created... Hope that solves your delete issue... K
It means that the computer can't find the hard drive portion that starts the computer into OS X. It usually indicates a dead hard drive, though sometimes it can be fixed by running your OS X install disk and using the repair function on it. If you don't feel comfortable doing this, find a good repair tech on Craigslist or through your local search.

Reset the PRAM, if nothing yet, replace the keyboard. Because thats a string location, which means if you look at it, its a "line" across the keyboard, that usually happens when there has been liquid spillage. If so, the warranty has also been voided and may require paying for labor and parts.
