Apple's latest MacBook Pro marks more complaints – and this time it's quite noisy.
MacBook Pro users have taken to Apple's help forums and MacRumors to complain that their new computers do what they describe as "crackling" or "distorted" sounds when playing audio. The problem does not seem to be a problem with the speakers, as the error turns out to play audio through the speakers or through the headphones.
Apple did not respond to a request for comment.
"It literally sounded like scratching a disc, it was not like a background or something – the distorted sound completely," wrote a user at the MacRumors forum.
Others wrote that they have asked Apple's support team about the issue, but have not found a solution to the problem.
The latest version of the MacBook Pro was launched in July, and has been deleted with complaints since its inception. Apple last month released a solution for the MacBook Pro over reports that the software to prevent the computers from getting too hot had a serious impact on performance. It has also taken grief from Apple fans who wanted to see a new designed keyboard on laptops to replace the shallow "butterfly" mechanism on the MacBook Pro's super slim keyboard. Versions of the keyboard have been exposed to fracture when it comes into contact with dust or sand. Apple has added a silicon barrier underneath each key – as the company says is reducing noise while writing – but has not changed the overall design.
Apple reported last year that it sold 13 percent fewer Macs from the same quarter last year. The last quarter's earnings did not include the launch of the new MacBook Pro. Market research firm TrendForce reported in August that Apple is the world's fifth largest portable manufacturer and expects to increase the number of two digits from the sale of the new MacBook Pro.
