    Guys did you notice that over 5000rpm the eat is blown away only through the back left side of the macbook air 13". I thought the whole back will disperse the heat

    The intake is from one side of the back and the exhaust is through the other side. It's quite normal.

    You are right that the exhaust is practically on one side, but MBA has only one fan (for exhaust), so I wouldn't say it has intake, the other side is more like a passive exhaust to naturally escape the hot air.

    Even on a MacBook Pro with two fans, both fans produce both intake and exhaust. One fan isn't dedicated to intake and another dedicated to just exhaust. The same is true for the single fan on the MBA.

    haha, there is no magic in this world. Not this kind at least.

    Should be pretty self-explanatory.

    Both of those fans appear to be setup to pull air in from the side vents and blow it out the back.
