    I've bought a new MBA 13" i5 4GB 256SSD and I get an extreme fan noise after two minutes of gaming (Deer Hunter Reloaded), is it normal? :confused:

    Yes, totally....I have a friend who plays World Of Tanks on an MBA which is an I7 and the fans fire up almost as soon as you start the game. You don't need to worry, all Mac's with Intel chipsets have built in overheat protection...In the unlikely event that your's should go beyond that threshold, the MBA will just shut down to avoid damage.

    I've checked the temperature and I get 98C/208,4F after 5 minutes of gaming, are you sure it's normal?
