    Cam anyone attest to the level of fan noise on MBA 13 2013 (particularly the i7?) when under load?

    I am assuming that under normal use its dead silent, but expect it to kick up a bit when the HD 5000 is tapped.

    Any thoughts?

    Is this a serious question? of course the fans are going to kick in during heavy load. It can handle 1080p YouTube without the fans kicking in. When loading up a game (i.e. Diablo 3) the fans will kick in instantly.

    The question wasn't that the fans were going to kick in, that is why I mentioned it as well.

    The question is, how noisy is it, have there been any reviews with db tests vs other Mac notebooks, does any one out there who has one have an observation on the fan noise, etc, hence the "can anyone attest to the level of fan noise"' and not "will there be any"
