... that the Mac chime on startup sounds a bit cheap. I actually think it sounds like 'Duhhh!'.
That could be considered heresy in these parts!!!
who votes for the old hang-draw-and-quater?
its better than the noise of an orchestra tuning up (eckspee)
When they finally sort out the rights to the Beatles catalogue, they can use the final chord from A Day In The Life.
Hook your machine up to some bassy external speakers, max the volume, reboot, and think about what you've said.
On my MBP the chime still comes out of the internal speakers. Is this normal, as my older Macs never did this?
Where did you expect it to come from?
Yeh makes a big difference. Mine is hooked up to my stereo. On start up my mac now sets off car alarms 3 blocks away.
EDIT: And its more of an 'aaaaaaaahhhhh' sound. You know, heavenly, god like.
if you have speakers plugged in, it still comes through the internal speakers. I dont know why, but it seems to only be on Intel computers, as my G4 iMac and TiBook both played through external speakers.
Hmm. Just restarted, and I notice it does that on mine, too. What a wimpy sound that was!
You heard a Duhh too?
I think everyone who doubts me should just do a quick restart.
BTW is there any way to change it?
Yes, I observed the same behaviour on my MacBook Pro. Although headphones were plugged in, the startup sound came from the internal speakers. This is different on my old Powerbook.
That's what mine sounds like!
Maybe yours is defective.
Will the geniuses fix it for me, and how long would it take them?
Better then windows starting up...lol
After I got my blackbook for travel, now when I hear it on the road, It makes me feel at home.
It's old school. It's like the same Macs we had in the back of my second grade classroom that we played Oregon Trail on.
That's right baby.
It is time for a new one. They used to change the sounds once in a while, but now every model has the same chime. Booooorinnnnnnnng.
I was joking, I hope you are too?
If you use MacTracker, you can still hear the sound in all its glory.
The internal speaker thing is the big thing that bugs me about my MBP.
I wish we could use some retro sounds though. or they could make a new one. IMHO they should have created a new one for the intels.
