    Hi everybody

    I was just wondering if your MacBook Airs fans get faster when you watch a 720p HD Trailer from Apple. Sometimes when I do, the fans go to about 2600rpm and the temp to 151F° or 65C°! Is that normal? Do you experience the same? Thanks :)

    I once tried to get my MBA11's fan to spin faster than the idle 2000rpm. I stopped the test at 76°C. The fan hadn't started to spin up by then.

    ~50°C when watching Big Buck Bunny 1080p.

    To calibrate the battery on my Air I put Avatar Extended in 720p on loop. The fans never went above 2000rpm :)
