    The main problem is the same as those that I read here: loud fan. Can they fix it?
    Thanks

    My Rev A has always been pretty quiet, even when the fans running at 6000 it's quiet. If my fan got loud, I would ask a Genius to take a look.

    is the fan always running loud ? the fan on mine is only audible while streaming video, but it also slows down fairly quickly when i stop. if the fans only kick in when the system is working / producing heat i don't know what they would really fix. the machine has the get the heat out somehow, right ?

    Yeah, its running loud especially when streaming video, but it also runs loud even running ichat only or safari. I am a little bit anxious to send it back because maybe this is just normal. I will try my luck. Its box for service has arrived.
    Thank you for the reply.

    Not normal. It should run quiet when you're doing fairly non intensive stuff like web browsing with Safari.
