Hey, I was hoping someone could help me out. My macbook whenever lifted (system on or off) it produces clicking noises on the bottom/middle left (the noise is like an iPod classic with the scroll wheel clicks it makes when navigating) and I have a solid state drive so I know it isn't the sudden movement protection since this feature is not included on SSD MBP's. maybe one of the the ram slots is getting loose?:confused: I'm not afraid to open it, but I just wanted to see if anyone else has/knows of this problem before i have to resort to that. Thanks!:)

Not sure what might be causing that sound. I can say that it is not normal. I've got a late 2011 MBP running a self installed SSD and have not experienced your issue. Wouldn't hurt to open it open and check for any loose connections. Wish I had more advice/help to offer. Good luck in resolving the problem.
