    I have the new 2.4 aluminum macbook and today for the first time I started burning cds and I noticed the whole computer vibrates pretty strongly. Is that normal? Also if i pick up the macbook and move it slightly while its burning it makes a weird noise. Is that normal also?

    Sure why don't you just take your laptop and put it upside down while its burning...

    Honestly c'mon.. I thought it was common sense NOT to move your laptop while it's writing to a disc.

    And as for the vibrating, that's normal.

    The vibration does however, vary with the quality of the media you're using. Low end media, and the computer knows it can't burn as fast to it, leading to less vibration.

    IMO, the more buzzing, the better!! :D
