    It's funny hearing everyone say that Mac Pros are "too loud". I work around racks of servers everyday that hum like mo fos, so when i get home even my old iMac 266 doesn't sound that bad.

    I don't sleep in the same room as my computer, so I guess that could be a valid complaint...

    If I was using the computer in a recording studio (which I do), and I was going to spend the couple of £K it costs to buy one of these beasts, I would expect it to be quite quiet... :rolleyes:

    Wouldn't the computer be in another room with all the sound boards, etc...

    Lots of pro and project studios have at least some isolation for their macs/pcs.
    My dad's got a sealed, silent rack right under his mixer, and it helps A LOT with his old dual G4.
    If you're going to expect ANY kind of up-to-date power from a computer, as opposed to the below-top-spec Mac Mini's, then you have to expect to deal with at least some noise.

    Where? I've heard nothing but how quiet they are compared to other tower PCs (esp the G5's).
