All of them are likely fine, if you turn off the fan and the drive.  You
can do that easily (for example by running the processor at half speed,
using RAM instead of disk, or using a disk mounted remotely and
elsewhere, or even a 1G - raided - flash memory device, ahem). But I
doubt you will need to,  provided you avoid a hot and heavy "speed"

If it's crucial to you to have no noise, you will probably have to put
some effort in there somewhere in order to modify the running parameters
to your requirements!

And there are people who sell silent laptops, just as there are people
who sell fast (hence hot and/or noisy) laptops. It's a design choice
and a buy choice. You have to exercise your part of that freedom!

that all you would hear is the subtle noise of the clicking of the

My suggestion on it being completely silent....get a desktop computer
and put it outside the room and have only the monitor and
keyboard/mouse(possibly wireless too) in the room with you. This way it
will be impossible for any computer noises!!!!!
