So recently I've loaded my mac with bootcamp and thrown windows 8.1 on there (I'm a windows server admin) when I noticed the top left corner getting quite hot. The issue occurs in OS X aswell and as far as I can tell its about 105 when zipping large files. Is this typical of a MBA? I know its not a power user platform but I have to throttle the CPU to 80% in windows just to prevent a overheat. Screenshot Specs Size: 13" CPU: Intel-Core-i7-4650U MEM: 8GB SSD: 512GB Surface tested on, flat metal with no vent obstructions. After-thought question: If anyone knows, would removing OS X completely and keeping it installed on a USB 3.0 flash drive void any kind of warranty if I should need to return the device?
