A complete stress test includes high temperatures on a regular basis, over a period of several years. Only if your MBA doesn't die, or if Apple replaces your logic board free of charge and hassle, am I convinced that an MBA can take the heat...
I have seen too many complaints about Apple laptops that fail beyond repair because the current compact design doesn't allow these to be repaired without swapping the complete logic board. I cannot prove it, but I'm afraid heat plays a role here.
