Does anyone get a slight hum or grinding noise when they rest their arm/wrist on the computer to type? I'm not putting a lot of pressure on the casing, but I hear a noise.

I'm staring to think it is a fan? Anytime I put the slightest amount of pressure on the right side of the MBP it makes a humming/vibrating sound. Should I bring it to have it checked out? Its not like it is loud or anything.

That's what I would do.

Mine doesn't make any noise when I touch it. Press on it even.
