    Hi everyone,

    When I am using the lowest brightness levels, I can hear a faint wheezing noise coming from the bottom left area of the screen. The noise seems less and less distinct when I turn up the brightness and it is totally gone when I reach about 50% brightness, and you can hear it from afar if you place your ear at a certain angle. I just got my Refurbished 2013 RMBP today and this also happened with my non-retina MacBook which I had to return for this reason.

    So my question is, is anyone else experiencing this and is this normal? Because I'm worried since this happened to me twice already.

    try in a quiet environment, since the noise disturbs me at night, when working in a low brightness and quiet room..

    that means, something is wrong with my mac:(
