Such a fan.

By: jared Tue, 18 Apr 2006 21:35:00 +0000 good luck with the service. it seems weird to me that the cpu whine doesn’t happen when i’m in windows (through boot camp).

By: Mike Zornek Tue, 18 Apr 2006 02:16:56 +0000 Ow. I came to actual website (was reading this in NNW) to comment on how the chart for flipping me off — and then I come see to see someone’s beat me to it. :-(

Good luck with the ‘book repair.

By: George B Tue, 18 Apr 2006 01:50:26 +0000 My MacBook pro, the 2ghz model is also at the Texas facility getting repaired with the same status btw!

One note – why is Apple so slow on their service? Other companies selling high end products do overnight swaps and replacements for their customers. 5-7 days for a repair for a brand new laptop with this price is really disappointing and unacceptible as well.

In fact I called the Apple store and got a Issue # in case my MacBook comes back with issues so I can return it right away instead of being screwed out of my 14 day return period.

Apple has had my brand new laptop longer than I have (me 3 days, Apple between shipping and service 7 days) and that really really bothers me.

By: chrisk Mon, 17 Apr 2006 20:50:52 +0000 Ok. Here is my deal. I bought a brand new MacBook Pro this weekend.

I noticed the CPU Whining noise two hours after getting home with the machine. The noise is very annoying. I also am experiencing slight noise in relation to the brightness setting on my display. Like I said, the noise is slight but noticable.

I would like to thank Daniel for this blog, as now I know that I am not crazy and being nit picky!

All that aside, I am really pissed that I just spent top dollar for what I believe to be (when it comes to computing) a superior product. I paid top dollar, and I have to run a program to trick the cpu into stop whining? This is BS.

Does anyone have any tips on what to say when calling apple? I want to actually receive service, for at least the noisey screen. I am not going to tolerate any noise like this from an apple product. I mean, christ, I work with cheapo Dell Laptops all day long and I have never had any problems with infuriating sounds.

BTW: Heres is how I deal with the sound.

10.4.6 1.83 512MB

Screen: All the way dark, or all the way bright. Whats interesting is, after the screen is all the way bright the sound comes back.. I hit the “brightness increase” key and it goes away, even though the brightness is already maxed out.

CPU whining noise:

I start and close comic book, and never touch ichat, I use AdiumX instead.

BLEH !!!!

By: charles Mon, 17 Apr 2006 17:41:02 +0000 Unfortunately, Google is not always right. While it is obviously right for MacBook, it completely fails on this other example.
