    Bought this $2K baby on the first day of BTS promo on May 25th, so Tue is my last day for return period.

    I just noticed this noise from my right side of computer. I think it's my hard drive noise. Came out when running a slightly heavy program such as VMWare Fusion. You guys see this as a reason to get this exchange???:confused:

    I recorded this noise using my blackberry bold 9700.

    i doubt if it's the SMS as my laptop is laid flat on a desk... I have the OEM 500gb 5400rpm. I really wanted to upgrade my hard drive too, so I'm not sure if 7200rpm will make this noise even worse??

    I've had my i7 15" with a 7200 rpm since Thursday and I haven't heard anything unusual, so having the 7200 would not make it worse, its gotta be your particular hard drive.
