    I will be really shocked to see vents on the bottom of the new Air.

    If Apple still choose that form of cooling, they truly are going to look like dip tards choosing form, COMPLETELY over function.

    Anyone want to place a wager?

    I can't believe you people. The thing hasn't been unveiled YET, but people are already complaining and reclaiming revisions?? Over a thing that doesn't exist??

    Get a grip, man.

    Why are people so sensitive to heat on their laps? Are you not wearing clothes?

    The vents in the current MBA are easy to block which then causes the system to slow right down as it attempts to prevents overheating.

    Clearly, I am complaining about the failed venting design that has been in place over the past three revisions.


    So this is for you...

    Here in the USA, we have a state named Arizona. I find this state to be one of the best places in the nation to live. However, there is a seasonal occurance called "Summmer" that makes the Air completely useless in the business feild outdoors.

    Durning the summer here, we use systems called "Air Conditioners" to cool our homes down to comfortable levels. Before bed, sometime I would like to check my emails and surf the internet to wind down from a stressful days work.

    The fabulous designers at Apple have also made this simple task completely impossible. Unfortunately, using a magazine, book or other surface to set the Air on while in use is our only option.

    I am just another crabby American speaking my mind.

    Maybe they will put the vents in the hinges like the rest of the Macbook line.

    Assuming the case design remains the same, where would you put the vents?

    your main personal vent is in your arse (bottom) which you continually sit on; yet when overheating occurs you simply lift one cheek, activate the fan and the built up heat is gone. voila.
    now the MB Air works in exactly the same way.
    why not elevate the said Air for maximum air flow and heat expulsion? :D

    Good question.

    Side venting, keyboard venting, top venting or directional venting.

    I dont get paid the big bucks to make these designs, but we all pay big bucks for their efforts.

    Apple has to be aware of termal issues this design causes.... right?

    Less than a day left. (Hopefully)

    1/Yeah well here in France people know about those flying things called "airplanes" that allow you to travel, so not everyone assumes that because you live in a country you're from that country. (or, to sum it up: no need to talk to me like I'm 3 because you think I'm a "foreigner" and therefore "dumb").

    2/ The new Air hasn't been unveiled, yet you're all ready to have a stroke about a problem that may OR MAY NOT exist on a future model. Here you are, insulting those "dip tards" from Apple, and writing in CAPSOFWRATH!! over a contingency that will be resolved in 24 hours.
