    Recently, when I lift up the right hand side of my laptop (quite abruptly, but nothing too fast) the hard drive gives a "clunk" sounds. No other effect, but I just hadn't noticed it before.

    Is it something to worry about? What should I do?

    That's the Sudden Motion Sensor parking the HDD heads to avoid user stupidity. It's a good sound.

    Probably the motion detection kicking in and parking the heads. Sounds normal.
