    What is that noise when you turn on the macbook? It is like some sort of "scanner" noise... i dont know how to explain it. what happens inside when the noise happens, what is the computer doing?

    It's either the SuperDrive or the HDD starting to spin.

    It's the SuperDrive, because it's the exact same noise as when you insert/eject a disc.
