    Hi All,
    I have had many problems with this laptop. High pitched key noise on some keys, rattling noise from the screen... etc. However, the most annoying one is a loud click noise coming form the hinge I believe when I open the laptop after it has been closed for a while, it is really loud and clear and happens every time. I'm pretty sure it was not like this during the first month.
    once the click happens, it can't be reproduced directly. the laptop has to be left closed for about an 2 hours. and after that, the noise returns when opening the lid.




    any suggestion? any one of you is experiencing the same?

    Thanks.

    Update: authorized service provider said that this is normal since it is new but I'm sure that it was not producing the same sound when it was new (few weeks old).

    My 13" made no sound when opening the lid when new. After about two days it started making a small clicking sound if closed for a while. It would only make it once and if I closed and opened again straight away it wouldn't do it.

    On mine, it sounded like it was possibly due to the rubber seal around the screen sticking to the top of the bottom case when closed for a while.

    However, a few weeks on and the sound has gone.

    thats interesting, on mine Im sure that it is not the rubber sealing because sometime it happens when the lid has been opened for a while and i adjust it only. it seems to be related to the hinge, it makes clicking sound each time it moves after being fixed for a while.

    Ah right, yes if it does it when adjusting the lid then that's different. Possibly just needs to loosen with use.

    My 15" started getting the same click when opening the lid about a month in too. I'm also getting that occasional touchpad or speaker click that I never noticed before.

    too late, it arrived at Christmas Eve

    I should send it for repair, no ? such noise is unacceptable, regarding the price...it "clicks" like an electrical heater

    I did have mine at repair due to the click and not even apple engeeners did know what it is, my issue was escalated up to that level.
    But as they did not offer me a replacement I did remorse my buy at the 3rd party reseller insted of waiting for the engeeners to figurer it out, and I did not wanted to send it to the us either so.
