    Whenever I open/close my MBP there is a noticeable creaking sound (sveral times until I fully open/close it) which doesn't sound very good or normal.

    Anyone else experiencing this?

    Should a Apple Store let you swap it for another one (without paying a restocking fee)? I only bought it this past weekend.

    I'm sure they will fix it, I can't see them swapping it over that issue.

    That better not mean I have to send it into Apple. :eek: Will they lube it up or something?

    Is the sound coming from the screen or at the hinge? if its the screen it might be like mine and the clips are loose.

    Appears to be coming from the bottom of the screen. Also when I hold it, it also makes a creaking sound, especially if I hold it from one side. It's really pissing me off, and I don't want to have to deal with problems in the long run.

    This reminds me of this thread I saw the other day on notebook review. This guy wanted a replacement MBP because his right option key made a funny sound when he pressed it. I mean, who even presses that key???

    Wait, weren't you the one that demanded Apple to take your MBP back and modify your firewire, usb, etc to the RIGHT side?
