    I ordered mine and it should be here next week. I only got the 512GB SSD though. It was $1700 with 12GB Ram and the 512 GB SSD

    Hi pips!

    I got the 13" i7-8850u model couple of days ago and I am considering to return it, because of fan noise.
    I have upgraded from a 5 year old ultrabook with i7-4500u and I got something worse as a result.

    I've found lots of posts about it and tried the solution of limiting the performance, but I just want to verify that I have the same problem (Also I cannot read 19 pages of posts ;) ):

    When it's in BETTER PERFORMANCE it doesn't go higher than 2Ghz, yet the fan is working but quietly (with some annoying whistling) while being on 2%-10% - in this mode it's a bit slower than my 5 y.o. laptop and my old laptop doesn't have any noise when CPU is low.
    When it's on BEST PERFORMANCE it's faster, but the fan starts working much heavier after like 10 minutes and it doesn't stop. Using it while the fan works like this is not pleasant for me.

    So if I want to use it in a more or less pleasant way then it works slower than my old laptop..

    I don't think a replacement will solve anything, I think that's just how it works.

    Please let me know if I am wrong..

    Thanks
