In process of shopping a new laptop, appreciate suggestion!!!
How would you like your T400/T500, especially in noise level?
PS: MacBook is deadly quite. You would think it were turned off, when eyes are closed.

My T500's noise level is excellent, the last laptop I had was an HP TC4400 tablet. The noise level got worse for the HP over time.
I can't say how it compares to a Macbook as I've never owned one but they do seem pretty quiet whenever I'm on a friend's Macbook.

you probably won't find a comparable laptop at the same noise level.... Macbook Pro have similar sound like, but they are rather fragile, my friend broke his new one on the mining site, when he dropped his, 3000 AUD down the drain... the hinge gave away, the screen cracked.
Would at least be usable if it was the either T400/T500. Apart from some cosmetic damage.

I've been using a T400 with switchable graphics for around 9 months. The notebook is very silent, even if the fans kick in.
If you don't need mobile workstation level graphics or don't play 3D games, then I recommend that you take an Intel-only model. Life is easier in many ways. Also, at least the T400 ATI graphics is not that much more powerful that it's worth the troubles.

It was run-through by coffee recently but it works .
