Okay so I have had my Macbook for about 3 weeks now and the mooing is annoying me soooo much! I have NEVER had this problem with any Mac before. I had an iBook G4 which I absolutely loved. Never did the fan go on and off every second. It's like make up your mind! And the bottom of the computer gets sooooo hot! Also, my bright screen makes a low buzzing sound. Anyone else experience this? I may bring it back to the Apple Store tomorrow and see what they say...maybe they can replace mine with another one. It sucks cuz I love the computer! If it wasn't for all those cows!!! :mad:

Another example of why you never buy a Rev A machine.

Sorry to hear about your troubles...

I read this article about the presense of a thin laminate covering the vent. If that's the cause of extreme heating, the solution is pretty easy.

A 'rev A' is the first release of that product, thus making the next release a 'rev B'.

if its that simple to fix the "mooing" there should be no issue. and if anything else should come up you can always take it down to the apple store. and having a rev A machine always does make sense to get the apple care for the additional time.

i know people have had issues with the support on the phopne. but those **** parts on those machines arent going to be cheap.

mines perfect. no "rev a" problems here. and if nobody bought rev a products, then: 1. none of the problems would get fixed and 2. there would probably be no rev b due to lack of interest in the market of rev a

Since we're on the topic of Rev "X" machines, do you know when Rev B will be released?

As was I, my guess would be maybe at the conference in August though.

Back to the mooing, mine has done it once. It only does it when I launch a non-universal application which is I don't often. I only heard it faintly, and I only hear it in dead silence. I also think a firmware update will fix it, and if there isn't one I won't really mind. I'm happy w/ my new Macbook.

I have the same issues. I'm hoping a software fix for the mooing. As to the buzz, launch photo booth and see if it goes away.

I've noticed a slight 'mooo' type noise when the fan first spins up. If it's really running hot (like, I accidentally block the vent or something) then it might moo every 4 seconds or so as it's making its mind up. TBH, compared to the constant whine of the thinkpad I had before, it's hardly a distraction :-)

I am really happy w/ my Macbook, despite the moo that I've hardly heard. Once I put more Ram into this beast, it will fly.
