If the whine continues, Jasmes, consider taking it into the store for a replacement. They are supposedly dealing with such issues, especially over-heating and battery problems with the early batch.
I'm really interested in hearing this noise to see what it sounds like.
Machine is brilliant. Only problems with it I have are:
- I don't like the coating on the LCD's, it doesn't do much for clarity. Actually I hate the coating on the LCD, its really upsetting. I really really hate it.
- No way to set the keyboard backlight to always on. I love glowing keyboards.
Otherwise, its pretty much perfect. It does whine, but I'm quite jaded about computer noise, so that doesn't bother me at all. I'm used to my 11-fan gaming rig sitting next to me at all times, so by comparison this thing is silent.
