if it’s a new macbook pro uni-body like mine…I still hear a click every so often when I move it around quickly. And the assumption I came to was it was the hard drive heads being pulled back so they don’t take as much damage over time. I can feel/hear the click from the front right corner area, but not 100% sure though.

There’s an update for that released today (coincidence, eh?). Are you using a 500 GB, 7200 rpm hard drive? Details.
