    I love the mac mini best desktop ever, anyways I have a first gen mini and want to eventually get another mini. Question is are the newer mini's any louder as in fan noise? do they run hotter? I got a mini because its so unnoticeable and want to make sure the newer models are just as quiet.

    What do you use yours for? Anything intensive?

    My Aunt and Uncle switched over to Mac by purchasing a Intel Mac Mini and it's very quiet. They have it down in the desks 'tower enclosure' (just an open tower-sized space below the desk) and you can't hear any fan noise at all. I don't know about operating temps though but I suspect they wouldn't be that different.
