I also notice when I am watching video full screen that the fan kickcs in.

I am a first time MAC buyer and very very impressed with what I have bought.

By the way I purchased the Apple care extended warranty for my powerbook. I registered it on-line. I thought I would get confirmation in the snail mail or by e-mail. Has anyone else done it this way and have you recieved any confirmation of registration.

it takes them a while to get the confirmation of the apple care out to you, but they do mail you a letter basically confirming it.

I have never heard my powerbook's fan come on. Now granted, I have a lot of other noise in my room from my PCs but when i use it outside of my room I never hear it. I can normally feel the fan running because of where i use the mouse is right next to my side exhaust vent. Just for reference, I have a Titanium running panther.
