    I've had my aluminum MacBook for one week. This morning I was online and all of a sudden I started hearing a noise come from the bottom right hand corner of the machine. It just sounds like a little piece of metal/plastic clanking, this occurs like every 10 seconds. The sound isn't horrible but I'm pretty sure it's the first time I've heard it. Has anybody experienced this noise? Do you know what it's coming from? Should I be concerned? Please help. Thanks in advance

    It's probably just the hard drive arm clicking. But, if it starts to get louder, occur more frequently and it affect performance, better take it up to the Genius Bar.... Just to be sure.
