    Anybody have experience with both of these in a quiet room? I'm used to a very quiet computer (iBook) so I'd prefer the quieter iMac. Thanks.

    Well the computer in my sig is very quiet. I would imagine the CD would be a little quieter but the C2D would give you better performance. Advice: Don't buy a computer based on how loud it is. :)

    My C2D 17" is very quiet. I really don't hear anything when it's on.
