I'd like one with 15-17" screen. Is there a recent fanless model with that screen size?

Silent laptops - What can be recommended?

In another post I asked for recommendations about silent desktops, but I'm also about to buy a new laptop. The one I run now from Fujitsu-Siemens sounds as a vacuum cleaner after a couple of minutes when its fan starts working - and I rather not want another laptop like this. So what are the recomme...

I will try to arrange with Pyrotech to listen to both the "Silent" and the "Ultra Silent" models, and I will report here of the experience.

[quote="Cistron"]Another problem about SSD is their controller chip. Some of them are of such rubbish quality that the SSD is even slower than a bug-normal laptop drive.

Thanks for the advice about choosing a WD Green Power drive instead of the one they choose - a Seagate Baracuda I believe.

And as stated in my original query, building my own computer is out of the question. I tried that once with a disastrous result soundvice. Now I want something that is soundless/noiceless out-of-the-box. My experience with laptops is that they are not soudless and all, at least the one's I experienc...

Thanks again for all helpful really good advice. I will use the computer at home, for "home office" work. I realise, as suggested, that using it at my real office it would not make much difference, because of the surrounding noice there anyway. Yes, the man at Pyrotech admitted that the harddisk the...

Thanks for the suggestion, having a smaller SDD and one regular larger harddisk. But the man at Pyrotech warned me from placing two regular harddisks in the box, because it had no fans the harddisks could overheat and be destroyed. That had happened to one of their customers. I wonder if the same wa...

Thanks again for the info. I also found Pyrotech, and coincidentally they are in the same city as I - Stockholm. I called them to see if they had a walk in store where one could listen to their line of computers, but they said most of them were custom built and shipped the same day. But since I was ...

Thank you for the information so far!

Silent desktops - What can be recommended?

Would like a PC desktop, as silent as possible. Do not want to build myself or to open it and change parts. The computer should be silent out-of-the-box and preferably come from any of the major manufacturers (for example Dell, Fujitsu, HP). What models can be recommended? Are there any consumer rep...
