    I just noticed that today when the fan comes on, there is this wierd buzzing noise that accompanies the fan noise, it sorta sounds like something is vibrating against something else. It sounds like its coming from right under the keyboard around the center of the keys... has anyone had this happen to them before? What is near the center of the keys (i guess around the T & G keys) any advice? Think i have a hope of apple replacing it? thanks!!

    Does it just sound like a motor? Like, a hum that accompanies the whoosh of air? The motor for the fan is around the T & 6 keys. Mine vibrates a bit when it's going fast...

    Is it really quiet? Sometimes I hear a really really really faint buzzing noise, but it's so quiet I don't care.

    Can this be used for a macbook? Or is there any alternate software that will let me do the same?
