    I have a new CTO 13' MBP. SOmetimes when I move the the screen (opening or closing) I hear tiny popping noises. They arent loud or anything. I was wondering if anyone else here hears them too? or is it just me?

    I have a 15" MBP and hear these very quiet sounds from the computer at various times. They sound like little pops and beeps. They do not change volume with the system volume. Very weird and I have no idea where they are coming from.

    My sounds are more like hardware rather than from the speakers or anything. They seem more like hinge.

    My 13" MBP had the same issue for a few months. Last week I took it to Apple Retail, and they moved the hinge for a minute until they heard the noise. They promptly took it in and replaced the entire screen assembly in 5 days. Good as new :]
