    Hi, almost every time or at least 80% of the times i open my MACBOOK i hear a sound (kinda like a cracking noise) when opening it more than 90* angle, it seems it comes from the hinge on the left side, ohh and when it does that sound you can feel it, it is like if it gets stuck or something.

    Sorry i hope you guys can understand cause my english is really bad :D

    Is that NORMAL!??

    it doesnt really bother me, but if that can give me a problem ahead on the road i better try to fix it now...


    OHH and theres no APPLESTORE near, i dont even know if it exist a applestore in PR :( , so i cant go there and have them check it...

    It depends on how bad the "cracking" sound is. If it's something you think needs a repair, then you might have to get it looked at.

    On that note, I did a quick search. There aren't any Apple Stores in Puerto Rico, but there are authorized service providers that can repair your computer. If you're covered under AppleCare, then the repair could be free of charge.

    Here's a link that will allow you to find Apple service providers in PR.
