--I have a 2012 macbook pro $1200 basline model--

When I first got my macbook pro, the screen was always so smooth to move back and forth, now when I move it, there is a cracking sound and it feels as if it was a bit stuck. Any suggestions?:eek::confused::confused::confused:

Same things happens on my base 15" 2012 MBP. Also had that problem on my previous MacBook. Kind of annoying but as long as it doesn't cause damage :rolleyes:

The screws on the hinges are very tight or there isn't enough lubrication there.
It is annoying but wont cause major damage in the long run (unless you have a 2008-9 model).

Yes, I had that with my 2011 Air. It was a bit annoying but didn't have an affect on the body of the Air.
