    Hi guys!

    Just noticed that when I'm lying on the bed with my MBA on my legs, watching some Hulu.com videos....it starts skipping in about 10-15 minutes.

    I don't see core shutdowns.....but actually the video/audio is going to desync and starts skipping....is this normal? Do I have to get a MB/MBP just to watch Hulu and flash videos?:(
    I think this may be related to the temperature, but usually it's not that hot...

    Any ideas?

    it's normal. it's the mba fault for being overheating and locking up the cpu speed down to 800mhz only.

    even if you're putting your mba on the flat surface desk will be probably resulting just the same. if the macbook air is few millimeters thicker, maybe we don't see this problem at all.


    i need revision!!

    coolbook used to be fine for me, but lately it makes the system completely frozen. changing voltage just didn't cut it. even with stock voltages with coolbook enabled makes the system hung.

    i don't know what's going on with coolbook.
