    Hi,

    I've had my macbook about 3 weeks now but there's something I've only come to notice over the last couple days. If I press lightly on the bottom of the macbook, directly below the trackpad there is quite a loud noise coming from there. I first noticed it when i tried to pick it up, and I'm just slightly worried that it shouldn't make that noise..!

    Any help would be superb, thanks

    If your trackpad and every other function does work fine.
    Your book is fine also

    ^Perhaps not, though.

    I'd take it to an Apple Store, show them what happens, and see if they have any advice/can fix it.

    Mine used to do that and it was a 13 inch pro. Just take it in and have them look at it. I was worried too, but it happened only after I opened the bottom up so I put a piece of paper in to wedge in the gap. I hope that helps you.
