    Does anybody know if the current 1.25 Ghz PowerMac G4 line-up offered at the online Apple store still has the noise problem with the fans?

    Actually, I've heard that they're pretty quiet...

    One of my G4's I use for work is the dual 1.25 and I don't even notice that it is on. But for some strange reason when you first boot it up all the fans kick on but after boot I forget that it is running.

    I have also noticed that with the 23" display pluged in it that is is a little bit louder. That probably goes without saying.

    It is hot as hell though!!!

    Hot as in temperture hot? Or hot as in "cool" hot, or both? :p

    My dual 1GHz PM has had the new powersupply and fans fitted. It's pretty quiet though far from silent. It was a lot louder when it got into the high nineties recently. Even when it's quiet it does throw out a lot of heat...
