Noisy HD of an iBook
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...
