WOW! Chill on Intel and AMD.Like Android Manufactures or windows PC manufactures don't lie to their customers. Intel lies. AMD lies. Nvidia slows down their mining capability of their GPUs. RAM manufactures lie about RAM speed. SSD manufactures lie about the the SSD cells they use. They cheap out and say they use MLC ssd but instead you get TLC.
Don't act like the other side is pure and kind. You can't make your own PC parts. You will have it buy it from manufactures that cut corners as well and keep hidden details to themselves.
Android is even worse. If you think every Android manufacture does not lie to their customers. Oh boy.
Apple lies. I agree that they should disclose having 1 fan. But you DO have 14 days to return it. That's why they have return dates. Also this is why I watch reviews before bilndly buying.
So what happens when you buy a Windows laptop/PC or android phone and the company lied to you?
Yeah indeed but could you have gotten a 4.5K 500nit P3 display as well for half the price?
The M1 Mac mini is a way better buy if you don't care about the display.
Today I had the chance to test the iMac from my Mom. It also has the noise but a lot quieter and only when this brightness is below 40% -> I everyday use not noticeable.
Crowed too soon. Now it is like mine. Noise starts below 70% and gets louder when under 40%.Thanks, very useful, this kind of noise would be ok to me
Yes, but the M1 chip does have much better performance per watt than Intel chips. I want a cool, quiet, computer, and I've been disgusted by the recent Intel chips and their lawnmower-loud fans. The performance is fine, but I'm not willing to make that tradeoff and suffer blasting fans all the time.WOW! Chill on Intel and AMD.
Watch the overpriced M1 iMac get wasted by a 11th Gen INTEL! i9 chip laptop.
HEAT produces power! No HEAT. No Power.
Crowed too soon. Now it is like mine. Noise starts below 70% and gets louder when under 40%.
Mine does not make any sound at any brightness. It's a launch day white 8/8/16/1T USA, made in Thailand.
Edit: OK, if I press my hear against the chin of the iMac I can hear a slight whine at low brightness (maybe below 40% as others said). And this is in a very quiet (30 db) room, so the noise is very quiet. Electronics buzzing noise drives me crazy and this iMac doesn't bother me at all. But, if I could hear it from where I sit then I would definitely return the iMac.
You’re right, it is linked to power usage. If I connect my iPad to the iMac the buzz goes way because more power is being drawn to charge the iPad.It's all linked to power usage, a white screen consumes more power than a black screen, and the buzzing increases as the power usage decreases. It's all caused by Pulse Width Modulation
No, unfortunately notI heard from another user the sound should settle in a few days
Unlike yours, mine was very audible in a quiet room. Now that I've restarted it it's a little more quiet, but not fixed.At night, in a quiet room, if you concentrate you can notice it faintly. But at a normal viewing distance (50-70cm from the screen) it's still quite hard to hear it.
As for the chirps, i haven't experienced them yet. It's only been a couple of days so I can't say for sure.Oh, another thing I noticed, on some streaming videos I sometimes get little "chirps" when I fast forward the video with the arrow keys. Usually with higher quality videos. Even at max brightness. Weird XD
Can confirm, no buzzing when charging my iPhone.You’re right, it is linked to power usage. If I connect my iPad to the iMac the buzz goes way because more power is being drawn to charge the iPad.
Just visited this page on my M1 iMac and it also makes strange noises (considerably louder than those weird chirping sounds my mac usually makes). It's pretty annoying and this is on a replacement iMac as my previous one has the same issue.Can any of you guys go on this page? https://context.reverso.net/traduzione/inglese-italiano/example my whine becomes quite strong on this page, for some reason. Like a goose squeaking. Super weird.
