    I'm thinking of upgrading to the new 13" MBA and just wanted to know if anyone has been experiencing heat issues?

    I love the fact my C2D MBA runs stone cold (95% of the time) as I type a lot sitting on the sofa or bed. My old Macbook C2D used to burn me!

    Personally I have no issues with heat. Even earlier today when I had 6 or so YouTube videos loading meanwhile running other intensive programs, it got a bit warm but not even close to an uncomfortable level of heat. Not stone cold, but no heating issues even under relative demand.

    I may have gotten a bad unit, because this thing(2012 2.0 cpu 8gb 512) is running at 6500 rpm on the fans with nothing open. It heats up extremely fast.

    I have my 2011 maxed out air and didn't have these issues except for under heavy load.
