    Does your macbook pro whine and if so what probram do you use to get rid of it. Second will apple ever have a software update to fix it.

    I think this issue was fixed with the new logic boards, correct me if i am wrong.

    My 17" has no whine, but a 15" belonging to my friend does. The new MBs do solve it I'm told.

    The whine issue isn't too terrible for me. The force quit hack works well enough for me that I don't bother with it, and it's the least power intensive of any of the anti-whine options available, though I've heard it mentioned by some that simply replacing the power adapter works wonders. :)

    As aaron said, the whine can be fixed by replacement of a main logic broad. When replaced, the whine is significantly reduced but not completely gone. It became apparent that apple has fixed this issue with new board for week 24+ macbook pros. Dig apple discussion board for more info.

    Yep, no whine here either. As a matter of fact, I can't find anything wrong with my MBP... :cool: :p

    i have the Hissing noise (similar to the whine) but i use the Mirror widget hack, i just keep it down in the bottom right corner of my screen, so all i see is a few pixels of the top left corner of the widget. the only downside is that the green light next to the iSight stays lit up, doesnt bother me but this guy definately seems to have a problem.

    Open Dashboard --> Start the Mirror widget --> Close the Mirror widget --> Quit Dashboard --> put your computer to sleep by closing the lid --> Wake it up and the whine is gone. It will appear again if you use your iSight.

    Got the whine but don't need it fixed

    My april MBP 2.0Ghz has the processor whine. Most of the time I use it in the office and there is enough noise that it doesn't bother me. At home I could notice it so I installed ShhMBP which has got rid of it entirely :p. It hasn't had any effect on the battery life or temperature that I can see. I still get 2.5 hours playing a DVD on it or about 4 hours of regular use and generally runs at about 45-55C. All OS and firmware updates applied (Apple really needs to fix the airport connection problems in 10.4.7 as it never connects first time when it used to with 10.4.6 :mad: )

    No AirPort connections issues here, so it may be isolated to either hardware or a software problem on your side.
