    Is this common with Mac-Books or something is wrong with mine, every time I move it or close the lid it makes squeaky noises.

    Same with mine. It can get annoying!

    Mine doesn't squeak. Never really heard that as a problem for the MBs. Do you live in a very dry climate?

    A drop or two of WD40 on each end of the screen hinge might do the trick.

    That happened to me, and finally it got so bad, that I finnaly took it in, and they replaced the hinge for me in about a day.

    After that, no squeek, and it opens and closes much smoother.
