    If i press in the "toungue" or the plastic part of the macbook under the clicker, it makes a creeking noise when pressed and then stops???
    Sorry if it doesnt make sense. I don't really have a good way of explaining it.

    Are you referring to the indentation on the front of the MacBook?

    yeah i think the problem might have gone away. I still have the squishness on the side by the ports on the screws...thts the only thing that bugs me about my machine

    My port side is slightly squishy too, I think they all are.

    Yeah, that's normal. The screw on that side is just ornamental; it doesn't fasten to anything, which explains the squshiness.

    It's not normal. Neither one of my MacBooks were like that.

    In fact, I had to send this one out for repair (case was falling apart and battery was warping). It came back squishy under the mouse and on the left sides. I sent it back and told them to fix it right. A $1406 (after taxes) computer shouldn't be squishy.

    There are usually some minor faults that are considered within the normal range by manufacturers; I suspect the squishiness typically falls within this range.

    Regardless, it's pretty common. Mine is squishy but it never bothered me.

    Then again, I'm the least anal Mac user I know. :eek:
