This is more a tip then a question but for now is the only place to put it...
 
NEVER hold your MBP just on the right side with the screen open.
 
Normaly everyone passes the laptop to others like this but in the case of a MBP (except the unibody) this can damage the optical drive.
 
The drive is very close to the aluninium body and this one bends when you hold the laptop like this and specialy if you have a disc spinning in the drive you will problably damadgedamage it.
