    Ok so I'm just wondering if this is worth me taking my computer in to the Apple store for?? The casing on my Macbook Pro seems to have a squeak in it. Every time I put my left hand on it to type, the case creaks. Has anyone else had this problem? If so, have you tried bringing it in to Apple? Basically I'm hoping there's a guinea pig out there who's already tried to get it fixed so that I don't go there and have one of the "geniuses" look at me like I'm a complete idiot and tell me there's nothing they can do about it...:rolleyes:

    Mines made some moans and groans but the have settled and don't bother me. I would take it in and see what they say - the worst is sorry we can't do anything.

    I know exactly the sound you're talking about and I'm glad someone else mentioned it...thought I might be the only one.

    The squeaking only occurs when it's on my lap, not when it's on a flat surface as the sound is actually the monitor rubbing the rest of the laptop and the "hinge."

    I'd be curious to know if this is even something that can be fixed.

    Sounds like something wasn't tightened correctly inside the MBP. I doubt Apple would fix it unless it affects the operation of the MBP.

    Yep, I experience exactly the same thing on my MBP, and I had come to the same conclusion that it is the monitor rubbing the laptop at the hinge.
