    hey guys,
    i've noticed that whenever i move or carry my new 15 incher, i hear a tinkling noise coming from within the thing. Has any one else noticed this? any idea what it is?

    It's none of these.

    It's either something under the trackpad (between the battery and trackpad) or these two brackets that hold clips for aluminum tabs on the bottom casing to latch in to. Lots of users have been hearing this. It's not the SMS because people with SSDs hear it (and it also doesn't sound anything like a hard drive head parking), it's not standard hard drive noise, and it's definitely not the optical drive.

    OP, see this thread:
