    anyone have a creaky rMBP. Anytime I put pressure down on the handrest I get lots of creaking. Coming from a couple of Unibodies, never had this issue.

    WHen I first bought my new rmbp it was creaky. All you have to do is put a little of grease on the inside of the hinge.

    I would return it if you bought it under 14 days. If not, I feel sorry for you and myself. You and I are out of luck to find that out early.

    Too bad its not just as simple as swapping it, being BTO and all.

    Got it in last week after about a 5wk wait.

    Hopefully they let me keep my machine while I wait for a replacement. I have a LG screen anyhow with some ghosting issues. The ghosting alone wasn't enough for me to get a replacement with, but the creaking does worry me a bit.
