I recall a while back, Apple offering replacement power supplies in an effort to reduce the noise problem in G4's. I would assume that if you were to buy a new G4 from Apple's online store today, it would come with this improved power supply/fan. My question is (perhaps someone that owns one can answer this), ever with the new power supply, are the units still noticably loud? I'm considering purchasing one, but do not want to get it if it's really noisy.

bump. I'm curious about this too, particularly with the DP units.

no dp units, but i just purchased a couple G4s for the office and the sound is fine. on hot days they make a little more noise, but it's nowhere near the original "windtunnel" G4s. in fact, i think our older iMacs make more noise than these. i wouldn't worry about the sound.
