    I just got the new basic model of the MacBook Pro 13-inch and it seems be make more noise than the previous one.

    The fan is running at around 2000rpm - I know this is normal, but it seems to be noisier.

    Anyone else found this? Or is there something wrong with mine?

    I was asking the same thing about my i5 15" http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=905539

    I have last years 13" MBP and its dead quiet. My previous 2008 15" was also fairly quiet until it got hot.

    Current i5 15" has a noticeable non-stop whisper which can get distracting in a quiet room.

    I found it noisier because the hard drive has a constant whirring sound

    The only time I hear mine is when I first boot and there is a whirring noise from the superdrive. Other than that, very quiet.
