I'm hearing an occasional metallic "plink" sound from the area of the
left grill on my Mac Book. I can hear the fan noise and what sounds like
a very faint, pulsating buzzing noise that sounds like the disk drive. The
plink is quiet, but easily heard and the buzzing is faint, but is a concern
because I hear it all the time, even when there is no disk activity. For
lack of a better way to describe it, it sounds like noisy ball bearings.

I'm worried that the plinking and continuous buzzing may indicate a
disk problem. Is there any way for me to check this? I'd rather not
migrate everything from my iMac onto the Mac Book until I'm sure
I know what's happening.

My system has the upgraded 100GB 7200 RPM disk.

Any suggestions much appreciated.
