So I just forked over $2300+ on a new 15" i7 MBP coming from my Core 2 from late 2006. Needless to say the computer is great, does everything I want it to, but there's one thing....THE NOISE. The best way I can describe it as a metallic scraping noise that makes me want to put a bullet in my head. I also use my laptop primarily in my lap, and NO it's not the HD. After doing some research here's what I'm talking about. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJmpervXe9M&feature=related I also found this article from Ten One, and it seems to be exactly the issue: http://tenonedesign.com/blog/fix-your-macbook-pro-like-a-champ/ I took it into the apple store today showing them the video as well as the article, and the best the tech said he could do is submit a report to apple. Apparently they can't fix it without apple's direction, and doing so myself will void my warranty. Needless to say I'm pretty ticked off. Shelling this amount of money for a new Mac to have this kind of service and pretty much tell me tough ****. It seems like a pretty simple fix to me. I'm not sure about the rest of you who have new 15" MBP's but this sound is driving me nuts. This is my second one since Monday and it's doing the exact same thing so it's definitely a design issue.
