    I just got brand new rMBP (this is the second unit I have had). I returned my first one because of a few problems. Anyways, this new unit is also having problems. When I pick it up, it sounds like tape or adhesive is peeling off or separating from the inside. This is especially apparent around the exhaust vents/hand reset area. This is REALLY annoying me... Especially because it seems I can't catch a break. Every Apple product that I have ever purchased, I have always had to go through at least 3 of them before getting one that is bug free..

    It's the battery glue isn't it...

    Just press firmly on the back/bottom. This should stick down the battery, which is usually the cause of the type of sound your hearing.

    That must be in the instruction manual that I didn't read.

    Just thought I would update this. One of the battery cells has completely come unglued. It's gotten about 100x worse than when I made the post initially. FML

    Rotating the computer makes a very loud, clunk....clunk....clunk.
