MacBook Pro Hard Drives Are Really Chatty

"There's a thread on Apple's Discussion Boards this week regarding trouble with the latest MacBook Pros with 7200RPM drives. Specifically, the machines are clicking (most users report the click as coming from the drive's location) followed by a beep that's, as far as anyone can tell, not coming from the speaker, as demonstrated above. It's quiet in the video, so crank up the volume and listen closely. Finally, its occurrence is unpredictable."

You have to crank your volume a bit, as TUAW says, but the sound is definitely there. Sometimes I feel for Apple because they make good hardware, but the companies supplying the components that Apple doesn't have custom made (usually hard drives) just can't seem to get their stuff together.

Anyone out there have a 17" MacBook Pro with this issue?
