    So, at the moment I'm torn btwn the Rev B 1.86 SSD MBA and a fully loaded (2.4/4GB/128 SSD) MB to replace my aging MBP.

    As a student, my usage is light, with the caveat that I watch an awful lot of streaming video in Safari - sites like Channelsurfing, Megavideo and especially ESPN360.

    Am I likely to run into major fan/heat issues with this kind of usage profile, or have the revisions Apple has made to Rev B made a big enough difference to assuage my worries?

    Thanks guys/gals!

    You should have no worries, my 1.86 SSD runs like a dream it hasn't baulked once at any video I've thrown at it (supported by OSX of course).

    If you can go to a store like BestBuy that have the MB and MBA close to each other, you will see the difference in screen quality. If that doesn't really matter then consider weight. They both run fine for video.
