Weird MacBook Pro noise

Since the introduction of the MacBook Pro (MBP for short) I’ve been thinking of selling my year-old 17″ PowerBook G4 and buying a new 17″ MBP. I’ve been reading many stories about the new MBPs and I’m not very happy. Random shutdowns, weird noises etc. I’ve just watched this video and it has definitely made its point. One of the best things about my PowerBook is that it’s quiet. Dead quiet. I’ve had it for a year and I’ve heard the fans only once or twice. You can imagine my “shock” when I heard the noise coming from this poor guy’s MBP. What’s going on with Apple? :|
