    Just got my replacement retina, the 1st one has dead pixel.

    I have restored everything from time machine. Everything is fine. But when I run iMovie and scrolling thru the HD thumbnails from Aperture library, it makes this jerking or stuttering sound from the computer. It sound kind of like hard drive reading noise, but isn't SSD supposed to be silent?

    I also have 25000 photos on my aperture, and it's silent when I scroll thru photos and videos.

    I just tried to duplicate the issue on my rMBP and was unsuccessful. You did mention that you had restored everything from Time Machine, perhaps something was corrupt or didn't copy over right. I'm running a clean install on this machine, so the restoration is the only difference I can think of between your setup and mine...

    but even if some files are corrupted, isn't ssd completely silent? could this be the noise from graphic card?

    Based on how he described it, it's definitely not fan noise. When the fans do pick up speed on the rMBP you hear the air more than you hear the actual fans themselves. It's a noticeably different experience from using a cMBP as far as fan noise is concerned.

    I get a metallic click from the bottom of my rmbp when it's sitting on my laptop, not sure if that's the same sound you're hearing.

    fan noise would be a quiet "grrr"ing sound not so much a jerking sound :p

    If you want a professional opinion, your laptop is enjoying too much high-res porn.
