    To those who are keeping their MBP and just dealing with the whine I got a suggestion.

    I've got extra room on where a tower is suppose to go on my desk, so I was brainstorming to what I could place here and I got a thought. A small waterfountian/waterfall, I had one of these awhile ago and just the quiet noise of water running will cover up you're mac whine. Just a lil suggestion :p

    Sweet ! Everybody with the first Rev's of MBP's should have this.

    Actually, Apple should just fix their sh*t !!

    Word on the street is that it cuts 30 minutes off your battery when unplugged. :(

    Wait... in the readme it says the app quits immediately after opening.

    Also, when I opened it it immediately closed (well, it might have not, it's just it's not in the dock anymore).

    So if nothing's running, how can it take off battery life?

    Did you remember to put it into your startup items folder?

    Can't you reinstall from the restore discs and go back to the old version?

    Exactly how loud is this whine? I have a ThinkPad and they were notorious for a buzzing sound when the battery was low and you plugged it back in - but not worth staying on the line with Apple for 30 minutes for.

    Do you have to be on battery for this to happen? If you had a fan - a little floorstanding one 5 feet away, could you hear the whine anymore? It'd have to be either a) pretty loud b) pretty high-pitched, to be worth complaining about...

    So is it one of those?

    whine

    I dont think that some consumers don't really understand the scope of this "whine" that us macbook users are complaining about. It does get annoying after a while. You may not notice in a room with other sources of sound (like the APPLE STORE where the HiFi is turned up full blast :rolleyes: ), but thats besides the point. We need a CURE!

    Esaleris ! AHA ! You know the sound. My computer before the MBP was a Thinkpad, and it did the whining noise "regardless" of the battery level, or if it was plugged in or not.

    Sooo, with that said, check this out. I compared my Thinkpad sound to the MBP sound, MBP was louder (by just a bit).

    Now, when you actually "solve" the problem, and here the difference of a whiny computer and a silent computer, you realize how utterly annoying the whine is.

    Craziness.
