    So it's been just over a week now with my refurbished Rev B and I'm noticing the casing is creaky along the edges/seams. Everything is tight and it's not the display. Is this a Rev B thing? My Rev A was super solid and didn't make any noises. I know the internals of the Rev A vs. Rev B were drastically changed and I wonder if that has anything to do with it. It's not bad, I just noticed it and was curious... maybe it's a refurb thing?:confused:

    Yes, I see what you mean - my MacBook Air was bought yesterday (new SSD version), and whenever I pick it up the edges do seem to creak a little - I'm frightened of it snapping !!!

    LOL... I wouldn't stress Barbie... It's just the seams. My MacBook did the exact same thing. I just wonder why my Rev.A didn't, but my Rev.B does. Oh well... Doesn't affect anything.:D

    I have a creak on the left front corner of mine. I have been thinking about breaking out the screw driver and making sure things are tight.
