View Full Version : Heat and VMware Vista using Office only on Rev A or B?

Dec 2, 2008, 12:18 AM

Would a Rev A MB Air be able to run VMWare with Vista using only office applications or similar?

Also how is the heat of the rev A vs B, can I use it in my lap contrary to the MBP I have?

Many thanks!

Member since 2005 and you can't find the answer.... :rolleyes:

Rev A Vista with VMWare has been reported to be sluggish/jerky. XP is fine.
On average Rev A about 10 C hotter, don't block the vents, fine on lap.

Problem is some people write that heat is not an issue on Rev A and some say 'stay away from rev A'.
What is it really? I prefer the screen on Rev A for sure but dont want to get something that doesn't display HD well or gets too hot to keep working during normal use, not video editing...
