    I have an admittedly strange concern and may be looking a gift horse in the mouth. I finally picked up a new 13" Air (256 i5 -- Samsung SSD, in case anyone asks). I have read various reports on the fan noise. I have obviously setup my computer, watched videos, downloaded apps, and installed Windows 7 and Microsoft office via Parallels and a Superdrive. Not once during any of this have the fans even made the slightest bit of noise. Is this unusual? The top right corner of the keyboard is warm sometimes, but not hot.

    It is probably just to quite to hear.

    I can't really hear it with music playing. If I turn off the music and do something processor intensive like encoding it will ramp up to 6500 RPM's and then you can really hear it.
