    Hey everybody!

    I've got this machine for two weeks now and I noticed that it started making an additional noise a few days ago. It looks as if it was coming from under the left side of the keyboard. It's not loud at all and it wouldn't bother me too much. But given the fact that it was completly silent the first days it DOES bother me. What do you think happened? Is it just dust? Or is the fan broken?

    Help me please :(

    had the same problem, there was a ball bearing in the fan or something. Took it into a Mac store and got it fixed.
