MacBook Power Brick Whine? – Make It Play Scales!

So, I’d written off the whole whining issue that everyone’s been talking about on Apple’s new portables, since I’ve now had a MacBook 13″ for about a week and had heard nothing along the lines of what people had been complaining about emanating from my new white bundle of joy. Well, the same still holds true, with one minor exception: my power brick is a whiner.That’s right, it whines. Or at least it whines as of now while my MacBook is charging. It’s not nearly as bad as some people say, but it’s there.Now, that said, there’s a bit of fun to be had with the whine. If you go and grab SystemLoad here: http://www.bresink.de/osx/SystemLoad.html you can get your machine to whine in scales. Not sure if it grates any less, but it adds an element of entertainment to it.I’ve done a brief recording here: http://fanplastic.org/media/mb_whine.mov
