    Hey guys, just got a new MacBook Pro for Christmas, and I wanna know if this is just me or for everyone else too.

    Try to get in a quiet room with no sound or outside noises (a soundproof room would be good), and hold your breath (not really necessary but don't want the sound of breathing to interfere). With your MBP on and open, put one of your ears (whichever one you hear better with) practically on top of the keyboard, on the far left side above the number '2' key or somewhere close around there, and listen hard.

    Do you hear a constant beeping at regular intervals? I don't know if this is normal or not. I am autistic so I pick up very little details easily, and this was annoying me since I turned the MBP on.

    Do you have the MacBook Pro 5.5? (The one they are currently selling on their website right now)

    I don't know about the beeping, but I hear a grinding sound as if the fan is catching on something along the way... Better get that looked at before the fan quits.

    Don't worry. Take it in to an Apple store if the beeping continues. They'll listen and may take a look, if you're adamant. That's been my experience and after all, it's an investment.

    Good luck.
