Ferrari 4005 bought - and returned!Thanks for all your great answers to my original post, this was really nice!
– Now I can also add some firsthand information on the subject:
Yesterday I purchased the Ferrari 4005wlmi, and I was really impressed by the build quality and visual appearance. But as soon as I plugged it in and turned it on, I realized that this was not the laptop for me. The idle fan noise was simply too much!
…Afterwards I really tried to convince myself, that it was something I could live with, but each time I rebooted the machine, and the fan turned off, it was a relief!
As I plan to use it for programming and office applications as well as gaming this is really unacceptable!
For now I don’t know what to buy instead, because it seems like the Travelmate 8100 series also has this high level constant fan noise!
Maybe a HP nw8240 could be a good and more quiet alternative?
