    Hi, I am the proud new owner of a core i5 MBP! I am loving it a lot so far, but I have noticed something a bit odd... every once in a while I hear a little clicking noise inside the computer, when I'm moving it and when it is sitting still. The sound is for sure coming from inside the computer. Could this be something wrong with the inside? It's not a gigantic problem, just a minor annoyance and I want to make sure that nothing is wrong!

    That's completely normal. It's the hard drive parking itself. Apple computers have motion sensors that can detect when they're being dropped, and park the hard drive to avoid data loss. The sound you hear when you're moving your computer is what I just described.

    Congrats on the MBP.
