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.
