Or… they spent their younger years bombarded by high-decibel rock’n’roll and thus have long been immune to faint noises. 😐
To me (see above), my wife’s NC10 comes across as essentially silent, the major reason — that, and the matte display — that I’ve ordered one for myself.
[quote1245653953=svm]To be honest, I think most of the people who posted in this thread about their “silent” NC10s are fanboys who like to justify their purchases by covering up the flaws
Great pun 😉
I couldnâ€™t care less about the NC10, I give it the same level of attention that I do my car, Iâ€™m told there is an engine in there somewhere? The NC10 is a tool that serves a purpose, it has a fan that I never hear, and my hearing is pretty good.
Haha – There do seem to be differences from machine to machine…..
And environment to environment. If the ambient temperature of the room is high, the fan will work harder and more often, my PCs are noisier in summer than winter.
Using the thing in a way that blocks vents isnâ€™t good of course, it will heat up quickly and the fans will struggle to cope.
Exactly. I can see North Africa from here, so I might expect a bit more fan activity than someone in the soggy, cold, grey U.K. (oops I think I said that last bit out loud).
You missed out grumpy, sad, miserable, and self-destructive 😉
I was being kind
what fannoise ?
I used it a few weeks before I noticed any sound at all. It’s very quiet.
I hear an occasional click from the HD and if I put my ear close to the machine a low wirling sound which could be either the fan or the HD drive spinning but nothing like the noise I get from my IBM and Sony Laptops.
My NC10 is not silent – every now and again I hear the fan kick in – but it is much, much quieter than any other laptop/PC I’ve used.
HI, My NC 10 is very quiet.
The fan is very discret.
Sometimes i hear some “cliks” from the hard drive.
Here there is no noise during the night( apart some seagulls ) and it is a good spot to check the silence of a notebook.
