    Hi all,
    I got my MBP today and im just checking it out giving it the once over.
    Ive noticed that when i push the plastic hinge in on the back it creaks/pops.
    It doesnt make a sound when i open and close it at the moment.
    My question is, is this hinge bad and going develop into a creaking sound when i open it further down the line, or am i being silly?

    Instead of probing your MBP in weird ways, why not just use it as a computer? This isn't Facebook in the flesh, stop poking it.

    Mine does the same thing. Think about this for a second, it's a plastic part on a metal frame. The plastic Apple used for this part is not soft plastic, it's a harder type, so it will creak when pushed against metal.

    Patient: "Doc, it hurts when I do this."
    Doctor: "Then don't do that!"
