well i dont hear this when i pick up my 15" (brand new)
how/which way are you picking it up? (like a tray, carrying it under arm?)
should this be a problem then if i dont hear it as someone said it's my hard drive locking...

It probably depends on the hard drive

because I used to have the stock 160GB hard drive and it didn't make much noise but now I have a 500GB hard drive and it's really clicky, which is normal like everyone else said

i got the very basic MBP 13 with 160gb drive. I guess i'd only hear it when the room is quit or when i'm in the library.. it is kind of annoying, and i hope i get used to it.

Sometimes it doesn't click though.. when i pick it up the exact same way i picked it up before when it clicked
