I bought a refurb from Tesco Outlet but it wasn't up to scratch, so they sent me an upgrade but that one had a noisy fan and you could hear the hard drive whining at certain times amongst other things.
That one went back too, and i'm now on my third one which is:
HP 8GB RAM 750GB HDD 15.6'' Windows 8 Home Edition 15-E040Sa Blue Notebook.
I really like the laptop but the hard drive makes a very very regular ticking/clicking sound which is irritating, accompanied by a sort of blowing sound which could simply be the hard drive cycling.
I've had this one a matter of 3 days and i've moved to this laptop from a very old HP Pavilion laptop (12+ years) that still made no noise. So am i being unrealistic or unreasonable in wanting a quiet laptop? I realise about refurbs etc, but as an A grade machine surely this shouldn't happen and could be indicative of future problems?
Any advice is appreciated as Tesco Outlet only keep offering me replacement machines.
