Noisy HD of an iBook

	Hello, All.

	I just bought myself a brand new iBook 600MHz combo, with a
	20GB HD. It is a nice machine and I'm surprised with the
	crispness of its LCD, compared with other notebooks that I
	have used in the past.

	But it is not perfect: its HD seems *quite* noisy when it is
	reading random tracks and this is worrying me a lot, even
	though is is relatively silent during sequential reads (but it
	can still be heard).

	So, I would like to know if this is common with the new iBooks
	with large HDs or if I should exchange it with a new one. I am
	afraid of losing data if it is defective and dies soon. :-(

	The information that made me worry about this is that at
	http://www.xiph.org/~jack/ibook/thoughts.html, Jack says that
	the machine (his is an iBook 500) is quite silent and that he
	can't usually hear the it work when he is in a silent

	Well, any comments are more than welcome.

	Thanks in advance, Roger...
