    Mine has a similar MINOR creaking when first opening my 11". At first I was bothered by it, but I actually like the fact that my hinge is very tight/sturdy. That and I need absolute silence to hear it. Hopefully no long time wear on any other parts.


    I'm curious how many other have it when checking as well though!

    I had exactly the same issue on my 13" MBA 2013.

    I tried the dental floss around the hinge idea but it never worked.

    I knew it would annoy me so I returned it.

    New one doesn't have it.

    Bringing it to hte apple store tomorrow, afraid that the creaking will all of a sudden stop of cannot hear over the loudness of the store.

    Should I ask for a replacement or just get them to repair it?

    If you're within the 14-day return window, you can also always return it regularly.

    Sending in for replacement hopefully next one will be better and possibly with a Samsung screen.

    Hopefully has no problems, I'm OCD about this stuff..

    Good call, hope you get a samsung screen (though unlikely as Apple's currently full of returned LG screens).

    Fingers crossed for you :)

    I went through a couple before I got a good / near perfect one.
