    Can you determine where exactly the sound is coming from. Is it from underneath where there might be some play between the bottom cover and the rest of the unibody case? If that is where it is coming from, it could be that the bottom screws need to be tightened somewhat.
    Otherwise, to answer your question, no its not normal. At that price point you should expect something close to perfection.
    Mine has a few issues/quirks such as a slight vibrating noise from the right speaker, especially when using skype.
    Otherwise, the screen is amazing and so is the rest of this jewel.

    What if you flip your MBP with the underbelly facing up. Can you reproduce the sound when applying pressure in that area?

    Duh, the purpose was not to make you use the laptop upside down but rather to try determine where the sound might be coming from. Anyways you seem to have made up your mind on how to handle this.

    You could take it in to Apple to see if they can re-seat the bottom case and fix the problem.

    You reall like the laptop and don't want to return it, and all of the sudden Apple has poor quality control and it's a piece of junk. Huh.

    Of course you've read about similar issues. People like to complain, but they usually don't say anything when everything works as it should. So, for every post where someone had an issue, there are hundreds or maybe even thousands of people with no problems.

    If it is any consolation, mine doesn't have any of the popping sounds you describe. I would definitely swap it...chances are the replacement won't have this issue and you will end up a happy camper.
