Ever since I bought the new 11.6 MBA when it came out I've been in love with it... incredible machine! My only complaint is that I have grown tired of switching between it and my desktop - so I'm thinking of making it my only computer and buying the Apple Cinema Display to use with it when I need a bigger screen and more comfortable typing position. However, I have some questions in mind and I didn't find answer through the search here. So if there are others with similar setups I would appreciate your input! - With the external display connected, how hot does your MBA get in normal use (i.e. browsing the web) and how hot when watching a fullscreen HD movie? Any noticeable difference if you run it on clamshell mode or open? - Is anyone using the USB ethernet adapter together with external network disk space? Is it worth it for the speed increase over WLAN and how well does it work if you use it connected to the MBA through the ACD screen's USB ports? - Any experiences on using an external USB disk through the ACD's USB ports versus a shared folder in lan network? Also any other experiences and tips on running the MBA regularly with external display, keyboard and mouse are very much welcome.
