If you’ve been keeping up with MacBook sans-Pro news, you may have heard something about an infamous “moo”-like noise coming from the fan. Basically, the fan goes on and off and on and off and on and off continuously, in a vain attempt to keep the machine cool. Now, I’m no engineer, but it certainly doesn’t take one to recognize that this isn’t normal behavior.

I took my black MacBook to the Genius at the Apple store (Oakbrook,
by the way) to get this fixed, and his response? “It’s normal. A fan
will do what it needs to do to keep the machine cool.” Gee, thanks.
