    Do you guys hear that springy sound? I asked my friend who also had a Retina and theirs had it. Is that just a design flaw due to how thin the unibody of the Macbook is?

    And before you go jumping to conclusions I'm not planning on returning it. I'm just wondering... on an average basis I'll never hear it but when I had it flipped and was checking the lining of my bottom case (due to crackling sounds) I couldn't help but run into that springy sound around that general area.

    My 15" MBP from 2010 also made this noise when I first got the machine, but for some reason it no longer does.

    I wouldn't be concerned.

    Yeah, I just wanted to see if it was happening to other people. Again, I'm just not sure if its because of the construction of the unibody and this is my first Macbook with this enclosure.

    Had it as well...

    I called applecare, they sent me to a repair lab, and within an hour or so, I got it back without that sound. it's a loose screw or something like it...

    it worth the "bother"...

    Yeah I ordered the screw driver online... I didn't want to take it in with the worry that (I read your thread on it) damage my Macbook via a broken screw/scratch.
