    MacBook Pro 15" Touchbar model is making some weird noise when it is on case which has magnetic top. And booting screen is weird too. Do you have any idea about these problems? You can see the case at the end of the video.


    Video is Turkish, sorry about that.

    I've seen another post same noise when sitting it on a iPad with magnetic cover. I believe the conclusion was off balancing the internal fan.

    So do you think is it normal?

    There is something definitely wrong. You should take it in right away.

    I'd guess it's normal if you sit it on a magnetic surface... Try using your computer on a none magnetic surface, wood/glass surfaces tend to work best.

    Thank you all. We ordered another one. I'll compare it with my mbp. If new one has same issue too I'll do nothing, if not I'll take my mbp to Apple immediately :)

    Make sure you take the magnet with you when you visit them.

    I wouldn't keep doing it to be honest. That grinding noise is the fans scratching their houses, it's going to do some damage eventually.
