    I recently purchased a Razer Blade Stealth with the i7 8550U from Amazon, and everything seemed to work well although I heard a high pitched buzzing sound coming from the top left of the keyboard. I contacted Razer Support, (They were very responsive) and after sending them a recording of the sound they came to the conclusion that it was coil whine, and it needed to be repaired or replaced. I decided that the best route would be a replacement. So I sent it back to Amazon, and bought a new Blade Stealth, although this one has the same issue! And it seems to be more apparant than the original one. Has anyone else experienced this? Or am I just really unlucky. Returning this one isn't an option because I leave for school in a week.
    I appreciate all feedback!

    Hey amills, I bought the same RBS i7 8550U in August and mine started giving the coil whine after a little over a month of use. It happens every now and then. Were you able to resolve it or replaced your laptop again? Your response is much appreciated.
