    I've got a powerbook thats about a 18 months old. Bought it brand new. It seems that the hinge for the screen is very tight when the screen is all the way open, or almost shut, and it makes a creaking sound. It also seems to be loose on the actual hinge itself.

    Furthermore the actual attachment point of the screen to the small 1/2 inch piece that is the hinge, seems to be loose as well.

    I am wondering if this is something that others have experienced and if so what they have done about it. I have applecare, is this something i should be taking my powerbook to apple to have fixed.
