    Hey guys long time lurker i bought a 2010 base 13in right before the refresh and was actually quite happy, but after reading through alot of posts i decided it would be stupid not do just grab the 2011 while i could, any way to my point my 2010 literally didnt make a sound like even after 3-4 hours heavy usage. now with 2011 which I do love and notice the small gain in performance i also notice the noise of the fan now alot more and a clicking or computing noise everynow and then. does anybody have any insight does this have anything to do with the new processor? other than that all is well with the 2011 just wondering if thats normal

    hey austin,

    I got mine on Thursday. It is pretty quiet. No noise after hours and hours of using it. I would think there might be something off with that particular unit. Better take advantage of the 14day policy. I got a bad battery, so i'll go exchange it today.
