    I have a new MPB, and was wondering if anyone else gets a hard drive "whirring" noise. It sounded like the fans at first, but then I installed Fan Control, and turned the setting all the way down to 1000 RPM as opposed to the 2000 RPM defaulted, and the whirring noise was still there, and the noise did not weaken like i expected it to, so it must be the hard drive making the noise. I took the machine into the genius bar for a cosmetic problem, and asked them to look at it, they said it was normal. Its to the point where I have the tv on, and I can still hear it if I focus onto it. After reading a lot of posts online, I really don't like relying on the geniuses.

    Can anyone confirm so I don't get paranoid to the end of time. :eek:
