Is there really noticeable reduction of noise from fans in new MBP Pro 15" Retina compared to original MBP Pro 15"? I'm curious if the asymmetrical blades configuration of fans really makes that significant difference which Apple is stating.
I have one, and it make a big difference. It's also a less unpleasant sound. I have to get the machine running pretty hot before I notice the fans at all. On my last machine, I would hear the fans all the time (granted, mine was a 13'', but several of my coworkers have 15'' and I hear their fans more than mine).
