    My MB one does. It's like a crackling electric sounds. Very faint, but if you have nothin' else on and close to it you can hear it. Is that normal? I haven't had any problems with it so I'm assumin it's normal.

    On my old Performa 6115, that was the first sign that the power supply was going bad.

    Wasn't there a recall on Mac power units recently?

    It's a really faint sound. You have to hold it up to your ear to really hear it. If this isn't normal. I'll look into getting another one.

    My PowerBook's power brick does that.. I'm sure it's just because it's a transformer... along with the immense heat it puts out..

    My original one did it. I called Applecare to get it replaced. The replacement they sent me does it as well.
