i got mine a few days ago, but the crackling has stoped and hasnt happened in the past 3 days.

should i bother exchanging it?

its either from speakers or fans, so i blasted music on my speakers from time to time to see if the needed to be broken in.

thoughts on what it is and what i should do?

If your machine is under warranty, I would bring it in. It doesn't hurt you to get it checked out and if everything is covered under warranty, go for it. When you spend that kind of money on a machine, you should have it run perfectly smooth. Keep us updated with how everything comes out.

This is correct. If your within the 14 days, they can just replace the entire machine. I would first let a Genius check it out though and go from there.

It's totally up to you. I personally would bring it in. It's not going to hurt you at all to get it checked out so why not.

Take it in. You just bought a DEFECTIVE $2000 machine with a one of the best warranties in the business. If you don't want to get it replaced all together, your warranty will cover the repair. You don't want that problem to persist, or possibly get worst.

I would keep it. Your machine is bound to get scratches over the use anyways so you should just keep it.
