In our G4/400 with stock HD, you can hear the hard drive grind away even if you're several feet away from the G4 - and it's not a failing HD - it was like that from day one new from the box. Then I saw a Power Mac G5 1.6 GHz on display - samething - fans are noiseless, hard drive grinds away at an extremely loud and annoying noise. Every G4 tower I use, I can hear the HD from a mile away if it's the stock HD (IBM, I think).

I can put my ear to my Maxtor drive (replaced my Apple one) and can't hear it. What's with Apple and loud as heck hard drives?

Lars, where did you see the G5 in new brunswick? i wanna see one
CompuSmart in Moncton, on Mountain Road. There is a CompuSmart in Fredericton - I don't know, but they may very well have a G5 on display as well - they had a iMac and eMac on display last time I dropped in.
