Krakadiska - Sounds of the MacBook Pro

I'm still lovin' the MacBook Pro, and having fun with it.  However, there's one thing that I didn't expect, and that was the surprisingly noisy slot-loading optical drive.  The first time I loaded a disc into it, it went Snap! Izzz!  Whirrr!  CLICK! Snap!  I honestly wondered if it had cracked the disc in half.  Was I going to have to pick out the pieces of a shredded DVD with needle-nose pliers?  But no --- this is a feature.   The other slot-loaders I've had, mostly CD players, load a disk is near silence, with perhaps only a muted click, and soft spin-up.   (But then, perhaps the violent snapping noises enable super-precise positioning for ultra-accurate DVD burning and reading.  How have other drives performed for all these years without them?  Who knows?)

What I do know is that Apple actually posted the sounds of the MacBook Pro.  So you can listen before you buy.  Now that's thinking different.
