Yeah, there is a little discrepancy about the fan noise (and when or how many fans are active) between Laptop<3's and Czm2000's laptop.
I wonder how my m680's fan function. Hopefully it will be quiet and the second fan not turned on all the time.
My apologies for any discrepancy between my experiences and someone elses, but I have said that this is my take/opinion. Perception is everything as I stated in my review. I've read reviews and then purchased something and loved it. But I've also had situations in which I hated it. It comes down to personal preference and each individuals experience. My "little" fan is not really audible. When it kicks into medium I can hear it if I'm not deep into thought, and I've only had it kick into high once.
Note: No offense to Laptop <3 but if you have read any of his posts he's HUGE into not hearing his fans. He has also posted some comments that in my opinion don't quite make sense and I even recall another member pointing that out in a following post. Thant's not to be jusdgemental because I'm sure that's the way he sees things. But then again, that's his perception.
A possible solution is FanGUI. I have not taken the time to try it, but if I do I will give you an update. If you are super sensative to fans though, a desktop type replacement may not be the right choice. I don't know how sensative to these you are. I just got my new Canon SD500 and I wanted to test out the video. If I get the chance maybe I'll take some video/aduio of it and post it.
