Hey guys, I bought a Macbook Pro in October, brand new. Ever since the day I've had it, I've noticed that the black bar makes a clicking noise when it is pressed or touched. It doesn't effect the Mac in any way, shape or form however it's one of those things which just annoys me! The guys at the Genius bar said it's nothing to worry about however I still want to know whats causing it. I've made a video to help you lot understand what i'm on about!

Look up engineering tolerances. One part is probably at the loose end of its tolerances while the other is a bit on the tight of them. This causes a poor(er) fit. Like the genius said, it's absolutely nothing to worry about.

Who presses their computer there anyway in normal use?

Thanks for the replies. Sorry for my late response. As long as it's not going to cause any issues in the future then i'll leave it and not worry about it!
