I have found G4s to be a bit unnerving in their silence. I mean, my home computer I've got several fans, making a normal amount of noise (read: not this new-fangled silent stuff, but what fans USED to sound like), a couple hard drives, etc. When I can't hear something go on, it bugs me. I have found balance with my work G5s. Of course, if you want to hear a loud computer, go find an Xserve. Our Xserve G4 sounded like a 5 horse Briggs and Stratton drove all the fans by chain. Our new Xserve G5 is pretty loud, but not nearly so. When I would be on the phone w/applecare getting parts replaced for that old piece of shit I'd have to step out of the room to hear.
