I've had my MBP 15" for a couple of weeks now and have had a few quirks that have got me wondering if I should take it back to the store to get checked out. First off a popping noise which occurs even when the sound is turned off, another member of the forum is going to the genius bar tomorrow about this so I'll wait for their feedback on this one. Also the brightness varies on the start up whilst loading and sometimes the starting sound will play and sometimes not, not a big deal but kinda random. Once when I loaded up my trackpad and keyboard didn't respond so I had to force a shutdown by hold down the on/off button. And finally tonight upon starting my mbp my HD icon had moved off the desktop screen completely.

Jeez, on reading that it's quite alot of glitches considering I've just paid 1000+ for this machine.

BTW im a mac newbie so kinda disillusioned!

Well most of the MBPs don't come out with issues but like anything produced in volume it is all a function of Production Quality Control not Design. Having said that Apple are making heaps and i would not accept any unit that was not 100% up to spec - in your case i would be taking it back.
