    Hi!

    I pretty much read everything I could find about the T4210, but there is nothing said about the Fan on the 4210.
    What do the owners of a T4210 say? Is the fan noisy? Does it run permanently even on idle Desktop?
    Thanks for your impressions!

    It is dead SILENT. I have never had a laptop that was as quiet as the 4210 - it's unbelievable. I think it runs at a low speed continuously, but seriously, you can't hear anything. The only way I can tell if it's running is by feeling the heat coming out of the exhaust slots.

    Seconding what bgstewar said -- the fan isn't just quiet, it's silent. Which makes the 4210 very useful for classrooms or meetings or other places where one wants to take notes without disturbing others.

    I've mentioned this in another thread (M400 fan issues).
    Fujitsu use a different type of fan system that makes the air flow faster and in different directions.
    As such it can operate slower and only cuts in when needed ~ which is less frequent.
    This also helps preserve battery use.

    So there is the trade-off, a quiet fan can lead to a hotter unit. I think Fujitsu made a good choice to balance between noise and heat. Noise for me is too much of a distraction IMO.

    same I hate noisey high pitch whines of small little fans.

    Id rather have it running slow speed, silent than it being at like 10k rpm being annoying as hell.

    :) best news i've heard all week. Silent computing is something I really appreciate...and noise is unacceptable in a quiet lecture theatre or seminar room...
