    Hello everyone.
    I've just purchased brand new macbook air and I've immediately noticed fan is really load.
    Now when I turn on macbook fan noise is like really loud without any program opened.

    Is this a common thing for a macbook and any idea how to fix it?

    Welcome to iMore!

    Our Macbook fan is noticeable, but I wouldn't say it's "loud".

    I do not recommend opening the Macbook on your own. Since it's new you will break the warranty if you do. If you feel that something is wrong, don't hesitate to make an appointment with the Genius Bar at your local Apple store. They'll take a look at it and if necessary they'll either replace it or repair it for free.

    As JMD suggested, I'd make an appointment.
    When I have a lot running on my MacBook Air Mid 2012, the fan noise is noticeable. Annoying to me but not real loud.
    Good Luck

    This a sound example I recorder on my phone.


    Like 30cm distance from laptop. It's definitely louder then my other laptops for idle state with no programs opened.
    I have to go to another town since there is no official app store, so I just want to double check that this isn't a normal thing for macbook?
