    Hi all. I got my first macbook pro yesterday. I have a question.
    When I boot up the computer or wake it from sleeping, it makes kinda like old printer noise trying to do something for like 3seconds. Is that a normal? I mean when I am using it, it doesn't make any noise only those time. I never owned a mac before so I can't tell. Thanks.

    This probably is the optical drive checking if there is a CD inside. Nothing to worry about, it's just a tad annoying ;)

    Just for further confidence, yes it is normal and every MBP does it as it's supposed to!

    Like they said; this will happen on any slot loading drive.

    Normal. A bit loud, harsh and scary, but normal. ;)

    Thanks everyone for reassurance. I was a bit scared at first.
    It's a great computer. I'll never go back to window based machine!!
