    On Rev B, what are HD videos like? I've heard that streaming them (YouTube, Hulu, etc.) is brutal on the heat, but watching them in iTunes or VLC is fine.

    What's the deal?

    Define "brutal."

    About twice that of the normal temperature (around 80 degrees).

    On my Rev A MBA i can only get 15-20 mins or so of HD video content from HULU or Youtube. I'm sure there are going to be some of you that are going to disagree with me. I URGE you to please tell me the secret to getting over this hurdle. I have a 1.6 MBA rev a with a 64gb SSD. I am running coolbook to undervolt.
