    I just picked up my new cMBP with 1TB HDD and I notice a faint click. I am aware of the standard hard drive seeking noise, but there is a very faint click when it is dead silent in between the seeking. Is this normal? I'm sure if I take it to see a genius, they won't be able to hear it since it is generally really loud in the store.

    Normal. That click is a function that actually protects your drive when it is moved suddenly or dropped.

    Thanks for your help! My PC was always so loud that I could never hear anything but the fan! :)
