Hi all,

I purchased the above laptop this week.

I wish to understand what "normal" laptop noise is and what is not.

When I start it – silent. (good)

Open Chrome, 1 or 2 Browsers will set off a low trickle of sounds (clicks or beeps?) – not the end of the world but annoying in a silent room.

Presumably this is the SDD read / write mechanical noise.
Should it be practically constant at very low usage?

Open an app such as Spotify and play a song – the fan starts immediately.
Same for Netflix.

The fan is low – yes, but in a silent room, annoying!

Should a fan start working for that level of activity? I know for slim laptops the fan is normal for low level activity.

the rule of if it doesnt sound like a jet engine its fine - applicable?!

Can anyone give me an indication what noises are normal operational sounds for a new device of this make and usage level.

Thanks in advance.
