    Hi guys ..i recently bought my white unibody macbook and when im working in a quiet room i can hear the HD when saving work , accessing the internet i was wondering is this normal ? can anybody else hear their HD constantly saving information on background or is it silent for most of the people out there?

    It is audible when the HDD works, especially at quiet places.

    That's at least my experience with one iBook, a MacBook and two MacBook Pros.

    Even though some might get annoyed of reading this, the thread title guy strikes again:

    A more descriptive and precise thread title will help cater to the right audience and get you more responses.
    To edit your thread title, just click on the [​IMG] button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the "Go Advanced" button below your message.

    Have you also taken a look at http://mroogle.*************/MRoogleSmall.gif, since that question may have been asked several times?

    Example: Can you hear your MacBook's HDD in quiet places?

    That's normal. You can hear the HD if there isn't a whole lot of noise where you are using your computer.

    There's a hard drive platter spinning at 5400 (7200) RPM in there, so yes, it is going to be a bit audible sometimes.
