Is it normal for 15" MBP to vibrate with music?

    When I turn music up half way max, I can feel a lot of vibration on my right wrist when I type. Is this normal? I know underneath the right wrist rest is a semi hollow space for HDD, but it feels weird to have one side vibrate more violently than the other.

    Yes, but I never had any problem with plastic construction laptops before (for the obvious reason) and wonders if all Al macbooks suffer the same problem. Not to add the left side of the laptop is significantly heavier than the right.

    Ive honestly never heard such a silly complaint. The computer will vibrate when sound is playing, or when the DVD drive is spinning up, its not a problem, its the laws of physics. Try taking that to the Genius bar and they will look at you like you have two heads.

    I think you need to goto bed, strange things are bothering you.

    That's because there's three speakers in an MBP, two primaries on either side and a subwoofer speaker located near the upper right corner of the trackpad which can vibrate due to the resonance of the speaker. Apple even has an article on it:

    So don't worry about it, it's meant to do that.
