    I just bought a new iMac 27" i7 and noticed that my hard drive makes weird noise. In system profiler it shows that my hard drive is samsung :confused: ... I thought all Macs had seagate hard drives...

    Is there something wrong with my iMac?

    What is a "weird" noise?
    Hard drives have moving parts so this produces sound.

    If it annoys you, contact Apple and get the HD replaced

    I think I found the source of the noise... It seems that my desk amplifies the vibrations of the iMac and thats why it sounds like that...

    Thanks for your replies :)
