Not a very good video but it generally gives you an idea the way it sounds when updating.
Sounds like my i5 when doing intense tasks
Interesting, I didn't realise the i7 was available anywhere yet, and also interesting because I wonder how that compares to the other versions?
I've got an i7 on preorder and it's still nearly 6 weeks away :*-(
The i7 is on sale starting today here in Japan.Mine was pre-ordered 2 weeks ago.
Cool. I'm interested to see feedback regarding performance/heat compared to the i5 version
A video does not compare to reality. The mike makes sounds more intense than what they are. I never has been bothered by the fan noise and I have tested many other Tablets where the fans are really noisy.
I'm still a fan. Fan noise comes with needing a fan. Needing a fan comes with having a device to compute with the combined power of my 47-pound desktop and monitor, and the convenience and style of my (still fabulous) iPad.
Benchmark benchmark benchmark I can offer resonating oooo's and ahhhhh's as compensation.
Personally I wasn't bothered by that noise as I was compensating for the amplification by the mic, and TBH it's probably still going to be WAY quieter than my aging Dell
I'm more interested in hearing opinions from those who have both devices. Unless there's a major issue with heat and massive throttling on the i7 I doubt I'll be changing my pre-order though!
I wouldn't expect the fan to sound any different or necessary even run more. The real question is how aggressively is the CPU is throttled. Once the CPU temp hits a certain threshold certain actions are going to take place like kick of the fan, lower the CPU frequency, disable turbo mode, etc... Interesting enough the i3 is designed for fanless implementations. It might have similar performance as the i5 and i7.
Tusker, would you want to start a new thread and give us some thoughts on the your new i7 unit? Since there are a few of us here waiting to get one in hand.
