    When i open the screen as far as i can, the moment i reach the end, i hear a click/creak from the right corner. This happens not always.

    I also discovered that the hinge on the right side feel loser than the left side.
    How? just push each side, and feel the difference.


    Do you (guys/girls) have this to?!!


    Thanks in advance,
    John

    Make an appt and take it in. Shouldn't be giving you problems that quickly. It NEVER hurts to ask. Squeaky wheel gets the grease.

    Agreed. I just tried mine and it doesn't make a creaking sound (oh wait, I have the 11"). Only time it does is when I hold it by the black antenna when it's closed.

    Either way speak to Apple.

    Making noises is normal and this happens to me. Now, the hinge being loose is something else.

    It make no squeaky sound, just a click.

    The hinge is not that loose, just a little bit looser than the left side.
    But do you mean that you have also the click/creak?

    haha, i know. "The squeaky wheels gets the grease" is an American saying for "those that speak up get helped". It's just an expression. :)

    Squeaks

    Yeah, I have the new 13" and mine is squeaking whenever I reach a certain spot on the hinge. It doesn't necessarily feel like its loose but it still annoying. I'm going to stomach it... I've been in the Apple store more than enough for the last couple of weeks.
