Martin, In all programs its slow and not on internet even.
Its also a very new machine just bought from Apple shop.
Looks like it might be heading for a trip back there if we can't
sort the problem.

If it's new from the shop, I assume you've got OSX Mavericks? I've no direct experience of mavericks, but on all my macs theres an option to make the keyboard respond slowly.


Try going to system preferences (in the dock), and then select the 'universal access' sub-menu, and then the tab that says 'keyboard'. If it's similar to OSX 10.6, which is what I'm using, there will be an on/off option for slow keyboard response.

When you say slow response do you mean the time it takes from a keypress to displaying on screen?

Exactly! Delay is far too long.
