    I think yes. All my friends who have an Early-2015 MBP experience the same rattling noise, when shaking. We make an instagram site for this, please check it out and write about your case, thanks!

    There is no good reason to SHAKE a laptop like that. What would cause a person to even try that?

    You don't need to shake it to hear the same, just watch this video:


    It's a construction issue and it affects the rMB too, and I'm afraid it will affect the skylake rMBP...

    I'm not sure why you think that waving a computer around like that is normal usage.

    I have never heard anything moving around inside my rMBP, but then again I don't flip it all over the place for no reason. I actually use it as a computer.

    Try it. If your rMBP is early-2015, it will.

    I just said that it doesn't. It's an early 2015 13" rMBP. I also said that I don't filp my computer around as shown in the video. It's a COMPUTER. I use it to complete tasks, not fan myself when I'm too warm.

    It sounds like something to do with the magnetic system of the force touch trackpad.

    Earlier in the thread you said you don't have to shake it.

    Several posts later, you proceed to tell people to shake their laptop and even post videos of you shaking your own.

    Then you state that the sound it makes is some sort of construction issue.

    Do you have a point you're trying to make?

    When I sad you don't have to shake, I meant that you don't have to shake itstrongly, but horizontally. Sometimes this little 'thing' inside stick in and I have to shake it harder to make it move, sometimes it moves without strong shake.

    Your macbook has an unleashed screw inside the case. Have it serviced by Apple.

    I don't understand why you're SHAKING your laptop. That is not normal usage.

    and once again, why is when someone has an issue, do they decide that it's global, and we all have it? tiresome. if you have a problem, this is a forum, where you can get help, advice, perspective. and if it's hardware...get it fixed, and get on with your life. :eek:

    Haha, calm down! Some dudes in this thread need to relax. If the MBP rattle like that somethings definitley wrong. I would not go as far as saying its a global issue but If a MBP made that kind of noise, the rattle would sooner or later be apperent to any owner, especially when picking up the laptop from a bag. Therefore this kind of problem is likely to be discovered within normal usage.

    I tried at least five early 2015 rMBPs and they all rattle. I find it hard to imagine that it's accidental.
