I've seen some weird issues with Mac's from back in my service tech days but this time it's my personal machine that is having the issue.

I have the 2.53ghz Macbook Pro. Whenever I hold the macbook in my ands and tilt the machine up on the left, down on the right a ticking sound is emitted from the top left section of the body. This doesn't happen when the machine tiled in a fashion when the back is higher than the front, only when the left is dramatically higher than the right.

This is obviously something I'll take up with a tech at one of the stores… but has anyone had a similar experience of perhaps some insight?

Thanks in advance!
Give me ambiguity or give me something else.

I've read elsewhere that this may be a fan related problem.
