    Hey guys, not sure if anyone else is experiencing the same problems but every 20-30 seconds or so I can hear the hard drive clicking and going away, is this normal ? Its not the mentioned "loud screeches" or other kind of annoying sound, its just like a little click, this is after the 10.5.3 update, just wanting to know if some of you experience the same thing ?

    I hear it once in a while, it is maybe a once a week occurrence.

    If you hear this regularly I would back it up and get it off for service.

    I had a similar ticking on my first MBA but it was coming from the directional arrows side (buttom right corner) not the hard disk side (top left corner) so it was NOT the HDD for sure!
