    well, my brand new 1 week old rMBP is making weird noise... a very very very light hum... almost like a hard drive noise but very quiet... and sometimes it clicks... just like a hard drive click...also very faint... is it normal? I can't tell if it's coming from the fans ....anybody heard such a thing? o should i take it to the apple store??!

    :eek::eek: Lol.

    Can't really beat the Best Buy deal right now. Got the 128GB 2015 MBPR for $1050 OUT THE DOOR with 6% tax included. Its $1099 on sale, or it was earlier at least. Plus 10% off with movers coupon. Insane good deal. Saved over $300 on the 2015 model that JUST came out. :D

    I had the exact same issue on my 6 day old rmbp 15". Called AppleCare and was told it was the bearings for the fan needing replacement. I returned it for a new one. Also took it to a repair center first to confirm the issue. Got a new one and no sound from the fan.
