So I have kinda bad luck (or great luck depending on how you look at it). I had a 2009 unibody macbook pro... the logic board failed, hard drive failed, power source failed, CD drive failed... and 2 days ago the mouse pad failed. In a brilliant stroke of luck, rather than fixing my computer, the people at the apple store decided to give me a brand new one! **** yea! Right? I got the 2.2 i7 15" MBP with the stock 750 gig 5400 rpm HD . So I took my old computer, backed everything up, and a couple hours ago came home with my brand new MBP. I've installed 1 program (Google chrome), and have spent 1 hour surfing the web (the extent of the use of this computer so far is visiting: chrome website, downloading chrome, reading reddit, reading gearslutz, and now macrumors). Im in bed right now with my computer on my chest, 1 hour into owning this computer, and I noticed... This computer is wayyyy louder than my previous Macbook pro. My other computer would be pretty much silent most of the time. This one has really noticeable fan/hd/some-sort-of-hum noise, and its really annoying. Id work in huge sessions in Pro Tools and not have anywhere close to this amount of noise coming out of the computer (not saying this computer is THAT loud... its just, in comparison to my last one, its definitely quite noisy... and I have only 1 program open, and the computer is only 1 hour old!) With all the problems I had with my previous computer, Im kinda scared/wary about this one. I really dont want to go through all those problems again (lost SOOO much data with the HD failure, not to mention the hassle of being without a computer for school/workIm an audio engineer and work on my computer all the time). Anyways, I was wondering... Is this normal for the new i7 computers? Should I take my computer back to the apple store tomorrow and request a new one? (I dont know if theyll be able to hear the problem in the noisy Apple store... but in bed, at night, in my quiet house, its loud!) Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!
