    Hi

    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 10º C hotter, don't block the vents, fine on lap.

    Thanks,

    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...

    Thanks
