Totally normal. This is my second AlBook (17" and 15") and they both make that sound.

No need to worry, I get it too. It sounds like the optical drive doing something, but I have no idea what. Does anyone know what that sound actually is?

Same here with my iBook. I don't know what it is, but it's normal.

Mine does that when I tilt it (without a cd) or sometimes, when I rest my hand on the right side (above the drive).

I will be paying Apple a visit and having this baby replaced. If yours does like mine? I suggest the same.

However, booting up is normal. Yay for you, boo for me.
