    Everyone I open or close my mac towards the front i hear a noise that sounds like a "clip" if I had to describe it. Is this normal? I know the old MBP had latches but I don't see anything on the new one and am trying to find out what the sound i am hearing is - no luck.

    Thanks for the help in advance.

    It is magnets in the lid and the case.
    The only thing one should here is when lid and case make contact.

    How can they be rare if they're in every unibody Macbook Pro?

    More like common earth magnets amirite?

    Please laugh :(
