Hey, since the first day I got my MacBook Pro 15" 2.53 GHz (September 25th I got it) I noticed a buzzing sound from the speakers or under the keyboard when I would turn on my MacBook, interfering with the boot up Apple sound effect and also being very annoying. Apple even has a support page for it on their website: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1823 . Should I call for service or just bring it in and see what the problem is. Thoughts? Advice?

I believe I might have experienced this too.
Any chance it goes away when the keyboard backlight is turned off?

article's not loading for me at the moment, but I think I've seen the same article, and its referring to an older generation of macbook pros, though the symptoms are the same.

In any case, mine doesn't have any problems after a few months of use, but who knows, it may be too soon to tell. I would bring it in just to be safe.

Bring it to a Genius bar. They will fix it for you. If not they will replace it.

I had a 17" MBP which had a buzzing sound as well. I returned it.
