    So am in the library now editing some papers, and out of curiosity and due to limited workspace I was trying to find a way to type with both hands in pages while keeping these folded papers stretched out and easily read.

    EUREKA!

    You can slide letter size paper under the MBA and it fits perfectly between the rubber feet for easy adjustment and slides :)

    Not sure if anybody else cares but this is great for reading printed off sheets and typing at the same time!

    A+ Apple

    I don't quite think this was an intended "feature" but that IS good to know!

    Sounds handy.

    But, I can hardly wait for the next thread started by someone following this tip: "My MBA is running hot". It's probably fine with a sheet or two, but if it starts filling the air gap underneath, and/or blocking the air vents in the back, it's going to create cooling issues.
