Hello Apple World!


I took the plunge and last week I purchased a new MacBook Air, 1.8 GHz Core i7, 4 GB RAM and 256 GB SSD Hard Drive. I am extremely happy with the machine. It works flawlessly and it is a breeze to do things with its fast everything.


However, I noticed a funny noise. It sounds like a spinning hard disk, when I know that there are no spinning parts on this things. Not even e DVD drive! I hear the noise every time I scroll a page on Safari and also when the computer is idle for a while, as if it was running a script or something... This would not be an issue if the noise did not sound like a 7,200 rpm *normal* SATA HDD.


Has anyone experienced anything like this? Thanks in advance for all your help. Have a wonderful weekend.
