Does your new MacBook Pro make a crackle sound everytime you open the lid?

    I don't mean to sound picky or ridiculous or OCD or anything like that so please don't give me too much heat,

    but does anyone else's MacBook pro 2016 make a crackle noise when opening the lid? It's not loud, and I'm pretty sure nothing is loose or anything, but that noise is there almost every time I open the lid especially if I don't open the lid for 30+ minutes or more.

    If I open it and close it over and over I can't repeat the noise. Only when I leave it around then open the lid.

    There have been some threads about this. Some people have hinge noise, and some get noise from the rubber gasket around the screen sticking (in which case cleaning it can help).

    Quite a few posts about this, if you dig around. Mine doesn't make a sound at all. If it doesn't go away, I'd take it in.

    Actually, tend to feel like mine opens a bit 'loose' compared to how tight my 2014 is. That's just the way they are though. I verified with display models in store.
