    Hi,
    my brand new Retina MacBook Pro emits noise in two situations:

    1.
    When using the SSD a high pitched noise is produced, it is located where the SSD is. The noise is reproducable with BlackMagic Disk Speed Test. This occurs with 4 out of 4 rMBP I have tested.

    2.
    When doing anything which involves graphic, another noise is generated. Reproducable by simply scrolling a webpage.

    Is this normal behaviour?

    Some very faint whine noise is nothing to be worried about, but its certainly not supposed to be loud and obtrusive.

    What your describing sounds like normal electronics noise.

    I think in our overly OCD world a little humility and Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Mac? should apply here.

    It is quite annoying when I work in a very quite environment, especially at night, where i have to set the screen to the lowest brightness, no OCD..
