2015 13" Retina Macbook Pro Rattling when shaken?

Flight1sim
 Share

  When I tilt or shake my laptop I hear some rattling/clonking noise either coming from the Battery or some plastic diffuser in the display. 

 Should I go to the Apple Genius Bar and get the laptop replaced? 

Apparently all early 2015 Macbook Pro's suffer with this issue, but it's concerning me

 

Here's how it sounds, from this apple thread months ago: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/6861318?start=30&tstart=0

it's probably a fan

It's not the fan, not coming from that area of the laptop at all, and the fan is actually screwed in while the battery isn't

"After much much reading, there appears to be a sheet of clear plastic which sits at the back of the display, and this looks thick enough to be making the noise we hear. It doesn't look glued down and is placed behind other thinner sheets of material behind the lcd.

Probably that plastic sheet in the monitor then, everything else is all screwed/glued down pretty well. When it comes to actually damaging your device im sure its nothing to worry about, but i would probably still try and get it replaced with a different one because i know it would annoy the hell out of me having that knocking around.
