you sound a bit sexist. This IS a social problem. You make it a women problem. That's not okay.

"Its too ugly and noisy" is not a technical problem at first, but a social one "i think its too ugly and noisy in my opinion". Now you can accept this (okay, i think it too but i need the power), doubt it (hey, its not that loud) or acknowledge the other opinion (okay, its too loud for you).
Now start thinking about strategies to solve this (still solving the social problem first):
- avoid the problem by changing location or times
- buy another device
- mod the current device
- use long cables, put it in some other room
- talk about it and agree on some compromise
- ...

Now you decided to solve it with one of the technical solutions, you can start discussing if you for example need to buy a silent one and what's the budget. But first you need to decide the social problem, which may result in "we do not have to solve some tech issue, because we solved the main problem (one person disliking the pc of the other person) in some other way".
