    I just bought a second MBP today - this one for my wife

    Since it is my second 2.2 (albeit this one is refurbished)
    I am noticing some differences.

    When I hit the power button or when it wakes from sleep, the refurb makes a louder quick zip sound.

    My first macbook makes a softer and drawn out startup sound - similar to the startup guitar rift.

    also the fans are making very different sounds.
    I thought the refurb was much louder at first
    but after testing both I'm just noticing they are quite different
    and this is why I must be noticing the newer fan rythm more

    anyways - I guess my most important concern is whether the loud quick startup zip noise is normal
    its a bit startling

    the referbs usually have all defects fixed in them, so that's why you may see differences between the two mbps
