    As the reviews already stated, the fan noise of that thing is insane. Hands down loudest thin and light i've ever heard, but the chasis is indeed good.

    especially on the 2nd review at 5min 40 seconds he mentions something that REALLY bothers me personally about this notebook. I mean yeah, temps are good and all, but when I do basic stuff and that thing runs like a yet then I would personally throw it out of the window.

    Just imagine doing some programming work in a library and suddenly that thing runs like a jet, everyone staring at you wondering what on earth is going on. :'D

    Lol ya that's awkward. I personally wear headphones when I work but a loud fan is problematic in a quiet environment with people around. Maybe not a huge problem in a cafe where's there's a constant background noise.

    I had a notebook like that (still have but thanks to john I could fix it) and trust me, even tho I personally don't care, people around me care a lot :'D

    The noise of the notebook might not be loud in terms of dB readings, but the pitch and the nature of the noise make it quite irritating, especially on thin and lights with their higher pitched noise.

    The problem with the Thinkpads for this is you'll either need a huge one or give up gaming.

    Or maybe ask yourself how much performance you really want - just for gaming. A P1000 is a quite capable card, not to mention the P2000. And in the used-thinkpads-market, thats actually what 2 grand can get you.
