    I just got my new white unibody Macbook in the post today and I have one small problem.

    When I open the lid the hinge makes a little click noise every time it goes past the vertical position. It doesn't happen when I close it just open. The noise is very quiet, it's not loud or anything like that. I'm just curious to see if anyone else has had a problem like this before?

    I'm pretty sure it's cause the laptop is new and it will just go away but I just wanted to quickly ask on here but I spend all day putting my data on the machine and settings it up.

    Thanks.

    Sounds Similar

    I can hear a slight click on may MacBook (Aluminum Unibody) whenever I lift my MacBook on an angle, don't think it's the hinge. I would guess (probably totally wrong) that it would be the hard drive writing arm clicking when it is in a different position, not sure, if anyone knows the answer it'd be great to know.

    its brand new, maybe because its still fresh and clicks on a certain angle? if you dont feel comfy take it to apple or wherever u bought it and explain to them you dont feel safe about the click, after spending at least 1000$ im sure they would accommodate your issue
