    I have a 2nd MBA and it overheats when I stream flash videos online. How does the new MBA hold up when streaming media like on Hulu? I love my MBA and would consider upgrading, but given that there is no backlit keyboard; a similar heating issue with the upgrade would deter me upgrading.

    The new ones are much better. My 11" Air is actually a little cooler than my 2010 13" MBP.

    Does it stream videos without lag? Thanks for your response by the way.

    What kind of videos? I have no problems streaming hours of Hulu to my new 13" MBA ... with it laying on my chest, while I'm in bed. :eek: It doesn't get hot, and it doesn't skip.
