    My 15" MBP4,1 has this annoying vibrating noise in it, it sounds like it's the hard drive maybe? It's on the right side.

    Or perhaps it's the fan? in fact it sounds like a dog panting, but with a vibration sound.

    Anyone know why?

    Kind Regards

    Could be the fan flicking against a wire or the fan of some other component squeaking while moving. Sorry, I don't have much more of an idea of what it could be, take in into the Apple store and have them check it out if its bothering you...
