    Anyone notice any extreme vibration from their MacBook? Seems to be coming from the hard drive area, maybe the seagate 60GB?

    I noticed it on my 15" MBP. It had a 100GB 7200rpm drive in it though.

    vibration confirmation

    Just want to confirm your vibration problems as I'm having the same thing....I have the Fujitsu 60 gig.

    By the way, is the HD supposed to be spinning constantly even if the MB isn't being used?

    I went to a number of stores and held as many MacBooks as I could find and they all seem to vibrate some, regardless of hard drive model ( FYI - the Fujitsu seems to be the most common model). I believe it to be the fan off balance.

    My particular MacBook just seemd to get a lot worse after it had been on for a while, so they replaced it at the Apple store where I bought it. It would shake so hard after a while that the screen would shake.
