The new iMac - does it have a fan?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
The title says it all, really.

I'm new here, and about to take the Mac plunge but I am curious as to whether the new iMacs running a G4 processor means that they now need a fan. Does anyone know?

I've searched a bit this forum's archives, and Apples website but didn't find the answer.

Friends have the old iMacs, and I did like their silence. Hope the new ones are the same!

Cheers!

The iMac has a fan but it is quiet and only spins up when needed.

he fan's no big deal at all. It's so quiet. I haven't heard it yet in all the time I've played with it at the Apple Store.

Welcome aboard, David. Stick around.

FYI, we have a forum for discussing hardware that's already on the market. It's not this one. Future Hardware is for speculation about future Apple products.

Moving to Current Hardware.

Hi,

yes, sorry, should have noticed but I thought that as the new ones aren't available yet (in the UK at least)......

Will try harder!

Anyway, thanks for the info on the fan - it's been so cool using the friends old iMac without the blasted Wintel fan that I was hoping the replacement would be the same.

Anyway, the plunge is about to be taken!

Cheers

David
