    It seems like the hinge has stiffened up since owning it. Sometimes makes a pop noise when moving it from a non-moving position. I would imagine it's the plastic bezel that's kinda loose and snappy if you touch it at the bottom of the hinge but I dunno. Any one else? I can deal I just hope it doesn't cause damage.

    I need this machine to be fully working when I go abroad in the Fall.

    Mine is only a few days old and so far no stiffness at all.

    I have had my 2010 13" since the day they were released and the past month my hinge has stiffened up and has been making a popping/snapping noise, I'm gonna make an anointment soon and see what they can do.

    Yeah let me know how that goes.

    If it's no cause of concern, then I won't bother.
