    I bought my rMBP brand new from Apple Store in June this year. Ever since I've had it, it makes a kind of "creaking noise" if I press the bottom or hold it a certain way when carrying it.

    I've never opened it or undone any screws, etc.

    Very un-Apple-like

    Any ideas?

    Maybe the bottom isn't screwed on properly?

    I did a run of upgrades to my '11 model and if i didn't screw the bottom back on the "right" way, it would creak. This was the springs or something inside not having proper tension. I'm not sure what the right way was, but after some upgrades it would, some it would not and the only variable was the way I put the bottom back on.
