Dear all, This is my first post as i am now one with the world of Apple after buying my first Macbook Pro and i must say i am loving the experience. Saying that i need your advice to see if some issues i am having are really that and if they justify me bringing it back to the store so here goes. 1) I love the clarity of the speakers but have noticed that when at full volume there is very noticeable distortion. is this normal, am i just driving the speakers to hard. Even when i put the speakers to a level that prevents the distortion (call it there maximum volume) it seems very low. is the just poor speakers in the range or a problem with my computer. It also seems to be slightly pitch related as there is no distortion a lot of the time but certain notes/pitches will set it off. 2) When i first got it i had it in my lap and it was the quietest laptop i have ever had. Unfortunate i noticed that when i put it on a flat, desktop surface it developed a low pitched hum. i believe this is due to some vibration being amplified / aided by the surface it is sitting on as when i hold certain parts of the laptop it disappears. this seems apparent as when i hold the screen i can feel a vibration running through it and when i hold it a certain way the noise is reduced dramatically. again, is this a common issue or something to get looked at. 3) And finally. Very rarely Cd's can get stuck in the slot drive and take a few attempts to remove via the eject button. is this normal. Sorry for the rant and i look forward to hearing back from you.
