    Are you shaking the 360 when you hear the rattle? If so, then it's either the laser or the switch which positions the ring of lights. Both will make noise.

    As the 360 was designed to stand both vertical and horizontal, I'd say the console itself is indifferent as to which way it's being positioned.
    Unless, of course, you position it upside down: then you'll hear it raise some objections.

    It sounds more like something might have come loose. Have you knocked it or dropped it lately? Is the rattle a constant thing?

    When your 360 horizontal, the number 1 controller light is in the top left position. Now, when you stand the 360 on it's side, again it's in the top left position... which would have been the bottom left position when it was laying flat. That's because there's a switch inside which tell's the 360 which position it's in and which light to light up. If you shake the 360 you can hear it rattle.
