I'm starting to make screen recordings, and I want to figure out what fan speed is normal and if there's any way to reduce it. I had a 2011 13" Macbook air fully upgraded. Whenever I tried even short screencasts, the fan speed would increase to 6700 RPM and stay up there. Was so loud I could hear it on the videos. So I ordered a 13" 2013 MBA. i7, 512 GB, 8 GB Ram. It's my work computer. I tried a screencast on the new computer. It performed better, 3500 RPM. It made some noise, but not nearly as much. Wasn't noticeable unless I held up the machine close to my ear. 1. Is fan usage likely to stay this low if I'm just doing screencasts + simple video editing (e.g. cutting out scenes) 2. Is there anything I can do to improve temperature and fan usage? 3. Would I actually be better off with an i5 for the light video editing I'll be doing? 4. Any tests you would recommend running at this point? I've got 14 days to decide whether to keep it or get a different model. Thanks!
