    Even only with first volume bar, it sounds like 10 times louder than before. This can be a problem when i want to use my computer silently specially at night.
    This happens to my iMac core 2 duo.

    Is there anybody experiencing this ?

    from what other people have said in the other 10.4.9 threads around here it seems that it has happened to about everybody. if you need to listen to it quietly use headphones.

    I found the same with my iMac. I gave me quite a shock when I restarted the computer it really is very loud.

    Holy @#$% you're right. Even my 5 year old iMac is way louder now.

    I'm not noticing any differences in sound, but maybe it's just b/c I've got Macbook speakers going. I haven't tried with headphones yet b/c I've been at home all day moving around.

    My MacBook is louder and brighter after the Mac OS 10.4.9 update.

    Interesting, I haven't used the sound on my laptop that much, I wonder if I will be able to tell the difference.

    Also my MacBook sounds more crisp and clear (more refreshing and ambient).

    That's a hardware design issue not a software one.

    It made me able to communicate with my horse, boosted my personal income by 25% overnight, enhanced the lighting in my dining room, and I believe helped my 5 year old score a 162 IQ test, and influenced my wife to cook my favorite meals this week, but that's just my opinion... :rolleyes:

    How could a software update fix a physical material?

    And my iMac doesn't seem any louder. However, I have it connected to an external stereo. It's kind of difficult to tell....

    The only way to get that discolored palm rest fixed is either replacing the case yourself or calling AppleCare.

    You missed it....clearly when a palm rest changes colour it is a physical cosmetic problem. I don't care how good the apple engineers are, no software update can fix it. Even resetting the PRAM didn't fix it.:confused: :confused:


    Also being sarcastic here.

    Well, it was funny when one person missed it, but now that it is reaching epic proportions, it is more sad than funny.

    I guess you are right. I can use a headphone. Besides, it is not a big deal.
    Plus, I do feel the whole user interface is snappier in 10.4.9

    It's true. Food tastes better now. My friend's 15/30 vision is now 20/20. My car even changed it's own oil.

    Yeah, but was it the premium synthetic oil or just the regular? :)
