    Has anyone got a noise MB Pro when it is running on battery power?

    It sounds like a Toshiba!!!!!

    If I use two finger scrolling, the noise changes and it's not the hard disc whurring away.

    The only time I heard my MBP was when I had it setting on the couch and no air was circulating underneath the laptop, causing the fans to run more.

    You've GOT to be kidding. These MacBook Pro's aren't even supposed to be out yet.

    So they've got a little bit of a problem on REV A.

    If you think there a ridiculous company, well, then this site isn't for you.

    God. :rolleyes:

    Im relatively new to the site so sometimes I am not "hip" to the sarcasm so I dont know if you are serious or not, but I think calebjohnston was speaking of Toshiba when stated, "such a rediculous company".
