    So I have recently noticed more and more that my Air runs extremely hot when I take it to work and connect to WiFi for some reason (it may do the same at home, just haven't noticed). I'm only running Chrome currently with four tabs and pretty much zero other processes (please note pictures).

    Any ideas why?

    Looks pretty normal to me. Both my Airs (and my MB Pro) get warm depending on what I am doing with them. They will shut down before they get too warm but mine have never gotten too warm.

    Those pictures are too fussy to make out.

    Do a SMC reset.

    Maybe at you are you sitting next to a furnace? :confused: Maybe the laptop doesn't like work either. :D
