    Yesterday I noticed my ~2 month old MBA make a faint clicking noise when picked up. Never noticed it before. It now happens every time I pick it up in the middle with one hand and seems to be coming from inside the laptop rather than the bottom plate. I've scheduled an appointment with the Genius Bar for next week. Wondering if anyone has experienced this issue before?

    I had a similar issue with my rMBP. I took it to the Genius Bar and they opened up the back and found a piece of masking tape! It was sticking and unsticking to the aluminum which created the "clicking" sound. So weird, but all better now.
