Im noticing noise when I have the sound at upper levels, the sound is kind of like the bass is shaking the chassis and is creating an unwanted artefact, I don't know if its due to a faulty speaker or the speaker itself is lose inside the computer.

If you go to system preferences->sound and turn up both alert and output and play the funk sound there you can hear it a lot, it doesn't just play the sound clean, please someone try it

Even in lower half volumes I can hear it, and its quite annoying when it happens in some videos..

Not much time left before I can exchange the unit.

Cheers

If it's less than 14 days old and you bought it from Apple then without a doubt get it exchanged.
