    Do the new Macbooks still make the CPU buzzing noise?
    If anyone here has purchased the new SR Macbook can you please update us on whether or not it produces the cpu buzzing noise (cpu whine) when idle?

    Thanks.

    I guess you're right..

    But this noise is very annoying and I want to know if there is a point in going to the apple store and complaining.

    If you own a Macbook C2D can you please let me know if your Macbook makes a buzzing noise when idle? Just wondering how many are affected.

    I don't notice it. Sure, if I put my ear right up against the computer I can hear it a little bit, otherwise, it is not audible.

    It's a high pitched buzzing sound, happens when your computer is idle.

    I am in a super quiet library and I cannot hear mine. I put my ear up to it and it is very faint. I think it would be the fan. I would also go get it looked at.

    I'm going to the Apple store tomorrow and I'll see what they say. Mine is definitely not faint and can be heard from 3 feet away easily.

    I have a different problem right now. My iSight comes on when I boot up sometimes. The green light that is next to it comes on right away and when I run photobooth it is just a green screen. I need to find time to take it to the apple store.

    No buzzing noise here. Like others said, I can only hear the fan and the optical drive, otherwise it's completely silent.

    DO you know how fast it is spinning? If it is above ~4K RPMs then that is normal.

    This is a different sound.

    Mine makes the buzz too, but its rather a static electricity like noise. And when you start doing any task, it goes away.

    I have my macbook purchased on September 15th, just a month before the Santa Rosa came out. Mine made the noise I think from day one. You can hear it from beneath the "w" key. Its like something is cooking inside.... quite annoying. Let me know if Apple takes care of this.
    Thanks

    Ben
