If you have a 2011 13 inch Macbook pro can you write what you have i5 or i7 and the kind of noise your machine is making. on a scale of 1 to 10 the loudness doing basic work and again hardwork.

i5 basic work, pretty quiet. Noise is relatively nonexistent, except when you're typing of course.

0 being no noise and 10 being a hair dryer:

basic work (internet / text editing): 0 / 10 (cannot hear it at all, even if I lean in close)

hard work (playing Starcraft 2): 4/10 if speakers are off, 1/10 if speakers are on.

Basic work = 2/10,very quiet, but noticeable.
web surfing/music

Hard work =8/10,very loud close to sounding like a hairdryer.

+1. I also have the i5 and the only time I hear a noise is when I first turn it on and the HD boots up. After that its as silent as it comes. :D

Perception of sound is extremely subjective. This is pretty tough to do. One person's "unbearable" is someone else's "you kidding, that's it?".
