    That's a little hot. It also depends how many tabs you have open and what content you are viewing (Flash is on other webpages besides YouTube).

    Idling my MBA runs about 109. Right now for Safari I have one tab open and I'm downloading the iPhone 3.0 beta firmware. Currently, my MBA is running 119.

    Do you have other applications open as well? I notice if I have Pages '09 open my MBA gets pretty hot.
