    anyone else noticing this?

    It's almost like there is a dvd in the superdrive spinning, it vibrates so much.

    My GF's 2009 17" does not vibrate at all.

    Anything to worry about?

    Thanks

    doesn't sound right. i have zero sound or vibration from mine. really truly zero that i've ever noticed and i've even been doing a lot of big file transferring lately

    I have the 7200 RPM 500 GB drive on my 2011 MacBook Pro. I would expect a 7200 RPM to vibrate more than a 5400 RPM, but I have no vibration at all (that I can feel).
