    15" 2010, when I have it on my belly on bed, and I breath , i hear an annoying creeking sound coming from the bottom case.

    like it's extra space there

    my 13" unibody nvr did this.

    The bottom case is only attached to the top case via screws on the sides. There are couple small studs and attach to various points on the computer, but otherwise it's all air and nothing to hold the bottom cover. Since the bottom is aluminium and it's a thin sheet, it will flex.

    I don't exactly know what a "creek noise" is but maybe this will answer your question.
