    Can something run a youtube video 1080p and see if the fans kick in and after how long?

    this is a better challenge than a regular video offline

    another better challenge is running HD video offline with garageband, photoshop or encoding something

    2000rpm is the lowest speed the fan spins at - and is entirely silent.

    Ran same video. 13"/i7/256 gb

    Fan Speed: 5260 max, 5156 at end of video
    Temp: 191 F max, 176 F at end

    Can hear fan above 5000 rpm.

    Is this a problem?

    What browser are you using? What about Flash?

    I´m getting same results as the 2nd poster with a 13" i7.

    Watched that Avatar 1080p trailer with safari, no plugins, pure flash.
    Fan didn't change at all.

    13" i5

    Exactly the same on the i7 13".

    HTML5 is so much nicer than Flash.

    HTML5 automatically activates for me when I have clicktoflash enabled, but I couldn't then see how to change the playback quality? The HTML5 player definitely is nicer, though!

    I'm impressed that these new processes play this content in silence though!

    Had the fan kick in several times, looks like it was Tweet Deck, updating every second.

    Set it at 60 seconds, for the moment fan is quiet as a grave.

    The YouTube vid has the fan completely silent.

    i7 13" 256

    To prove a point:

    Two safari windows open, total of 24 tabs
    Flash media streaming from the BBC F1 website
    The new Gran Turismo HD video

    iTunes open, idle.
    Mail open, fullscreen
    Calendar open, fullscreen

    The video resulted in ~75-78 degrees C, fan remained at ~2000rpm. Again i7, 4gb, 256gb. The new processors are fantastic!

    Yep, it doesn't really count, does it? Old 11' 1,6GhZ C2D runs that vid with 62° and fans at minimum with around 20 other programs open in the background. However, HTML5 was used of course, in flash its a completely different ballgame.

    Ran this video at 1080p several ways on my 13"/i7/256 gb MBA:

    on 24" ACD, full screen - 5300 rpm, 91 C
    on 24" ACD, normal window - 3300 rpm, 81 C
    on MBA, full screen - 3600 rpm, 94 C
    on MBA, normal window - 2400 rpm, 83 C

    Do these results make sense?

    Both videos ran fine on my 5yr old dual core Thinkpad X60s.
