    Hi,

    Currently I have an iMac. I like to watch hulu while playing flash games on kongragate. Its usually fine, although some games cause hulu to lag or stutter.

    Is this something that I can continue to do on a air or would the computer get too hot with multiple flash applications running at once?

    The only time my air gets hot is when I'm playing a game, doing some heavy converting, or random times when I'm watching youtube or netflix.
    It doesn't always get hot, but it does sometimes when I use flash.
    Sorry I don't have a straight answer, it really does seem random.
    EDIT: But I have noticed it less when I upgraded to 10.7.3, so it might not be so bad anymore.

    Sure, you can try to keep doing it. It won't do the MacBook Air any harm, however it may heat up, get noise, lag/stutter... But if you can put up with that and still want to do it it's fine :)
