    Just got my 15 LED SR Macbook Pro.

    When I plug my bose speakers in at my desk and listen to itunes, I am getting a static pop sound. Should I take it back or is it fixable????

    By the way, LG panel and no yellow 1/3 of screen. Initially thought it was yellow, but I calibrated it, and now it only looks yellow if viewed from the side. Head on, white.

    One thing I have noticed, when I watch movies on it in the dark with the brightness turned down (cause this thing is a torch), I am getting quick flashes when a sceen has high contrast light and dark. I am very sensative to LCD flat panel TVs that use a colorwheel. Like a JVC dilila, I see rainbows!
    Is that normal for an led flat panel to see "quick white flashes of light"? or am I insane???:eek:

    The static pop audio is a well known bug with the MBP hardware architecture. I have the same problem. It's not fixable at this time, so bringing it in won't accomplish anything.

    I had severe static from my right speaker and had it replaced at the apple store. I picked it up and listened it was fine. I got it home and ten minutes into iTunes it was worse than ever. I took it back in and it took 10 minutes to act up. It on its way to Texas for a logic board replacement now. I'm getting a liitle sick of the issues. Love the OS but a little iffy on the hardware

    If you use optical out, you will not get any static. Only thing is that you have to get a speaker system that has optical in. Logitech has few of them with optical.

    I occaisonally get the static "pop" when listening to speakers but then I used a shorter higher quality cable to the speakers and now it rarely hapens. I'd still like to know how to eliminate this problem completely tho, as it is a bit annoying.

    well this is my first macbook pro to make static pops and I have had 2 powerbooks and this is my third mbp. I think I am going to exchange it, but I got an LG panel, I might get a samsung. Too many issues with these things right now.

    Optical may fix static but does not fix pop.

    I have a September 2009 MBP using optical out to logitech speakers. I have an intermittent popping to the speakers. I did not have the problem with the macbook from which I upgraded. I am thinking of getting the Griffin iMic 2 as I understand it will avoid the problem.
