    When ever i open or close the case for my white macbook it makes a creeky noise. Is this normal or should i go to the apple store and get them to check it for me?

    You might want to just have it checked out by apple. Could just be a minor issue that they can fix.

    Mine was doing the same thing super bad, so i took it to the store and told me there was nothing wrong with it but would fix it anyways. when i got it back i have heard nothing for about 2 months.

    Mine only makes a slight creak when you start and stop moving it, else its silent when you open and close it. Apart from when the magnets click... or when I start swearing after catching the skin of my hand in the back of the hinge... man that thing nips!
