So I have had my MBP (See my sig.) for 2 weeks now. And from day 1, I noticed that my right hinge creaks when I open/close the computer. The sound is no where near as loud as most of the videos on youtube. My sound is not a loud "POP", but it is definitely a "pop" nonetheless. Also sometimes when I pick the computer up, and the screen is open, the same "pop" sound is made. And I always pick my computer up properly. Two hands, evenly distributing the weight of the machine. I NEVER pick up with one hand. Don't want to risk damaging the structure of the unibody... I don't know if this is related to my hinge issues, but I've also noticed something else. I can't really take a picture of it, but here is a picture describing what my computer looks like... Uploaded with ImageShack.us I want to point out that I the image does not properly reflect the actual overlap. In all actuality, the overlap might be the thickness of a few sheets of paper. Hard to see when looking, but you can definitely feel the overlap if you run your finger along the edges. The sound is very minimal, but it is making noises that do not sound normal. The left side is perfectly silent. I went over to a friends house today, and his MBP is totally silent when opening/closing the lid. But mine makes a very unnatural noise... I've already contacted the nearest AASP, and they told me that they have seen this issue before and can have it repaired within few hours to 1 business day. I want to get this rectified as soon as possible, and not give it the chance to turn into a MAJOR problem later on. Otherwise, my computer is amazing! I've been using it for 2 weeks now. No weird freezes. Everything works just fine. It is just this hinge that is giving me a little trouble.
