    hello,
    In the short months I have owned my unibody I am noticing that it is very fragile. At times I pick it up or move it and I hear odd sounds or faint cracking sounds. But never see any crack ect... I just am curious why this is and what I should do about this problem. Maybe I am just paranoid any words to share?

    my model 13 base model

    These things are definitely not fragile. I stepped on mine with my heel and I am 215 pounds and didn't even dent it.

    You are probably hearing the battery cover shifting.

    the mbp hard drive has a shock absorption type thing built into it an when it "sets" it makes a popping or clicking noise that is quite noticeable. That's probably what your hearing when you pick the comp up or move it

    The case is not weak, if it breaks either someone tried hard or was being a complete dumbass, you wont break it
