    I was using an LCD iMac today and when I hit the Eject button I was greeted by what sounded like a large wooden door opening. When it closed, it sounded like someone slamming the door in anger. Are all of the iMacs this loud when you open or close the CD drive? I'm sure the problem is in the curved mold that folds down when the tray comes out, but that is just ridiculously loud.

    The powermacs make a similar sound. I think it's a very positive solid well built sound personally. Though i agree it could be quieter.
