    Need your advice on the hardisk click sound on the new 2.53 GHZ MBP.
    Everything is perfect. If I move the laptop a bit abruptly, I hear and click sound from the laptop. I am sure it is the hard disk sound and probably parking itself on vibration.

    Can someone confirm that this is true and the hard disk itself is not faulty.
    Thanks,
    BPN

    the macbook pros have sudden motion sensors for the hard drive which parks the reading head when it detects motion.

    Has anyone heard a click after moving the laptop. Do it when everything is quiet in night. I am interested to know.
    Thanks,

    the SMS does seem to be a little oversensitive, mine clicks when i tilt the laptop just a little too quickly
