Otherwise, I've heard that the Compal CL56 -- a very popular notebook in these forums -- is also a very cool & quite notebook.

The fans are driving me nuts and sorr the powerbook g4 is the quietest notebook becuase the fans only come on after on hour of gaming but thats for only for a minute then it stop and goes on agian another 30minutes or so. The powerbook g4 is ver fast for how quietr it is. The fan is 99.99 percent not their. It is as fast as a centrino 1.6ghz or higher not that bad concerdiering how quiet it is.

There are centrino notebooks on the market, just like Enderet and I stated, that have NO fans an example of this is the Sony X505. Couple that with a company that is known to make the quietest notebooks in the buisness , Seagate, and you have a near silent portable notebook system.
Edit: (The sharp notebooks arent centrino if I'm not mistaken, they are Transmeta. Someone please correct me on this if I am wrong).
