    Does anyone notice that rubber seal / creak / click sound the moment the magnet disconnects between the screen and the hinge? In other words, the moment you lift the screen open, do you hear this click/seal/creak sound before you start lifting up the screen? The hinge is completely smooth and silent.

    Just curious as I have never heard of it from other MBP. Not sure if it's just rubber seal sound or something wrong with my rMBP.

    I don't. Are you sure that there isn't anything sticky on your rubber seal?

    Weird. What could that be? I googled and found someone say if your display does not sit perfectly aligned it may make the sound. However, every retina I checked the screen is either slightly off to the left or right by 0.01mm at least.

    It's not super annoying just find it weird that I get this sticky/creaky/rubber sound the moment I lift the lid (when magnet is disconnecting). Otherwise it is silent.
