    Hi,

    I own a 2010 MBA and when watching youtube videos (Flash) or using Skype the fans will start blowing and become really loud.

    How is this compared on the new 2011 MBA 13"?

    Many are very interested in that question
    also how does the new 11" compare to the 13" fan noise,
    and how do both compare to the last models....

    I'd like to know if flash gets the fan going also, not that it'll stop me from getting the 2011.

    it's my biggest gripe with the 2010.

    I also would like to hear a bit more on this for youtube videos and Skype video calls.

    Can more people comment on the i5 MBA 13"? I absolutely hate excessive fan noise.

    I think the sandy bridge i7 is more of a problem for fan noise. I had to return a Lenovo x220 i7 laptop because it was loud like a freaking plane.
