    I am having no luck with SR MacBooks. The first SR MacBook that I got from Amazon had multiple kernel panics [Disk Utility recently reported that the HD needed to be repaired], so they sent me a replacement MacBook. Now this one makes an intermittent grumbling/grinding noise that seems to be coming from the center of my keyboard. It's worse if I've been running the computer for awhile, and at that point, I can trigger it by opening webpages in Safari. As I had another SR MacBook previously [and my husband has the original MacBook], I know what sounds normal, and this does not sound normal. It's not a really loud sound, like the grinding noise my husband's PowerBook G4 once made before the hard drive died, but, it doesn't sound normal either.

    Does anyone know what this is?

    Something wrong with amazon these days, I got an 2.2SR MBP 2 days ago, it came with tiger instead of leopard. Screen has 1/3 yellow tint problem, superdrive has a strange noise line grinding cds!
