    When scrolling through webpages on my MBA, I can sometimes hear a very faint buzzing sound. The sound is so faint that I can only hear it in a completely silent room. Does anyone else experience this?

    Have you checked your power adapter?
    Both my own MBA and the one I have at work does it and I figured that it wasn't the machine but the power adapter that produced the noise.

    I think its RAM or SSD. Have the same issue with my MBP since I upgraded to SSD last year.

    It's not the power adapter; I can hear the sound when I'm running from battery.


    Do you think this is an actual "issue" or does every MBA make these sounds? They are so faint that you can only hear them when you're in a completely silent room.

    Does the buzzing sound sound like tiny "zzzzzzzz" buzzing only when you scroll?
