    I just bought a new white MacBook unibody last night and I noticed that it makes a weird noise when I tilt (or shake) it. It sounds like one of the internal parts is moving or it may be the keyboard keys moving...:confused: Anyone ever experience same issue with their MacBook before? I'm debating whether I should take this to the Apple store. Any input is greatly appreciated!!!:D

    Don't worry about that, it's just the hard drive tilt sensor that prevents you drive from getting damaged if you jolt the macbook. Mine makes the same noise if i shake my macbook, it's normal. But for someone who has never heard it before, I can understand why you would think somethings wrong with it. I thought the same thing at first. :eek:

    yeah the above poster is correct... i remember panicking when i got my macbook and i thought the superdrive was faulty or something.. nope its just the HDD sensor keeping your data safe.
