A link to the MBP "moo" sound

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
I've read much about this issue, but wondered, "Come on. Sounds like a cow mooing? No way...Is this issue for real?"

until I finally stumbled upon this:


Funniest thing I've heard all day.

I went to the Portland Apple store yesterday to see if any of their many MBPs on display "Moo" - none did. However, I did notice that about 50% of them seemed really, really hot..definitely too hot for laptop use. The other approx. 50% just seemed somewhat warmer than the PBs I've used.

btw: That buzzy whine sure is annoying. However, it seemed opening any app. negated the whine.

    My MBP seems to run significantly cooler than my 1.67GHz PowerBook G4. As far as the moo sound, while I haven't heard this myself, I suspect it's hard drive or fan related, and might be triggered if you move the MacBook Pro while it is turned on.

    To get rid of the Moo, you just need to delete all references to DogCow.
