Hi, i've seen this topic is already been discussed, but i'd like to have more knowledge on it. I'm going to order a 15' 2.0 but i work with audio and for me the most important thing is to use a silent maschine as i work in a silent enviroment. I'm reading new models are very powerful but more noisy respect previous. Expecially looks like the fans are on almost always or frequently. Is this true? Is this related just to the thermal paste problem or in every new models fans start more often than previous models? I'm asking this because my girlfriend has a 2010 15" and is pretty damn silent and i'm tempted to buy this machine instead of new models. What do you think? Anyone needs a silent laptop too? Thanks for any opinions about this.
