    I just received a brand new MBP with a 7200RPM drive (Hitachi HTS722020K9SA00). When I'm using the computer on my lap, there is a very slight, but noticeable vibration coming from the computer. Is this a common experience or unique to my computer? I'm worried the drive may be defective or that it may not be properly mounted inside the computer.

    This is perfectly normal. 7200RPM drives spin faster and that is why you will feel some vibration.
