    quick question, it does not matter if my computer is off or in sleep mode whenever i seem to pick it up and flip it over or shake it a little i hear a loose screw/rattling noise coming from the back right of the computer near the disk drive area. i took it to the apple store they took it apart and made sure everything was tight ect handed it back to me and said everything is perfectly fine and its running great but the noise did not go away it is still there. The computer has been running great no problems what so ever but im wondering if this is normal and you guys hear or experience the same thing with yours? the apple store said they couldnt find anything wrong or loose. what could it be?

    could you replicate the noise there? I have a hard time believing they would give your computer back and say "well that rattling noise is no problem!"

    I'd be fairly hesitant to run my computer long with random metallic parts loose inside... one bad movement of the screw/whatever causing a short and boom, you're out a logic board.

    yes i can duplicate the noise at the store. they hear the noise when i bring it to them and they took it in the back unscrewed the bottom looked inside and made sure everything was tight ect. they couldnt find a thing wrong with it or find where the noise is coming from and the noise is still there. what could it be? When your computer is off just shake it a little and see if you hear a similar noise. it comes from the back right of the computer near the disk drive. should i be worried? computer runs great and they said nothing is wrong but why would it make this noise?

    Im having the same issue with my MBP 13 Retina , it sound like there is some tiny screw or some tiny plastic piece loose inside the device. Mine have just three months of use, and like your, it is running perfectly. Im gonna have t take it to a Apple Store to check it out.
