    Hi, I've just received my first Mac, a 12" PB with a large disk and a SuperDrive. What kind of noise level should I expect from this thing? The SuperDrive gives some awful clickety-click noises when inserting/ejecting a disc and the HDD gives off some small clicks when running. So what should I expect? :)

    Not that loud!

    Enjoy your Powerbook! I just bought mine on Friday.

    Yes, the Superdrive is a little noisy and makes clunking noises but not enough to make me worry. Granted I have the 40 GB HDD, but is seems to be fairly quite. I have only had the fan come on once and that was while playing UT 2003.

    Other than that, it is much quieter than my old NEC 650 MHz PIII.

    my PB 12" 1 Ghz is very quiet except when doing very heavy work. It is the combo drive model.
