Okay, so I have had my 13" MBA since 8/2/11. Today I went in to Thousand Oaks Apple Store because of my speakers were "popping" and a creaking noise from the bottom panel. Within 5 minutes of explaining my problem I was walking away with a brand new in original packaging box!! 45 days out of my return window and they still honored it. Did a full swap out and I am so happy! Popping in speakers are no longer present and the bottom panel is even sturdier. Still have the Samsung SSD which is another great plus!
