Hi everybody

I was just wondering if your MacBook Airs fans get faster when you watch a 720p HD Trailer from Apple. Sometimes when I do, the fans go to about 2600rpm and the temp to 151F or 65C! Is that normal? Do you experience the same? Thanks :)

I once tried to get my MBA11's fan to spin faster than the idle 2000rpm. I stopped the test at 76C. The fan hadn't started to spin up by then.

~50C when watching Big Buck Bunny 1080p.

To calibrate the battery on my Air I put Avatar Extended in 720p on loop. The fans never went above 2000rpm :)
