So whats the verdict on fan noise w/ the new MBPs? I swear my original unit was completely silent when the fans were idling at 2k...ever since it was repaired it seemed to have minor muffled noises that would sometimes come and go...and some additional noises thrown in here & there for good measure. That machine was replaced and the new one does it as well. Now here's the thing, did I just not notice it before? ...are all fans supposed to make a little bit of noise? I was sure my original unit was completely silent but perhaps I just didn't pick up on it. I mean, when the fridge is going I can't hear it but when it shuts off I can most definitely notice it and its a tad annoying. The thing I'm concerned with is, being an audio guy, I have a heightened focus on hearing...and if when I'm working in a quiet environment this will probably drive me nuts. So is this standard or is it the defect people have been talking about? It does sort of have that playing card in the spokes effect although its not in your face loud or anything like that. Obviously the fans are expected to be noisy when revved up...thats a windy sound; this is different.
