    It is good to see Apple taking some actions about this whine.

    I would like this problem to be solved by the time Merom chips ship with MBPs.

    It's good to know that something is being done to fix some of these problems. I know it's restoring my consumer confidence, which will influence my next purchase with Apple

    Yeah, and I would assume the same sort of progression would carry over to Macbooks.

    This sounds good!

    Luckily I have to go in to get my logic board and display fixed anyway... (due to different reasons, not whining).

    I'm sending in mine to get the keyboard & logic board replaced...but it is a 1.83 GHz so I wonder if these 'new' logic boards are made in the 1.83 GHz deal thingy too.

    I hope this new logic board has reached Denmark . . .

    My MacBook Pro is quite the whiner but I survive. Could sure live without it though :)

    After sending my MBP in for the second time a couple of weeks back, I got the new logic board. My MBP has just a slight whine now (almost non-existent), which is a far cry from where it was originally. The heat is also better, although not by much, but I've never been bothered by the heat so that's just a bonus.
