    hey All

    I'm a recent convert, picked up my first mac a week ago. Can honestly say I'm impressed by OS X :)

    Yesterday discovered that OnLive(Cloud Gaming) is available in the UK. Played around with the service at work on my windows machine, so was eager to do the same on the MBA when got home. 2-3 minutes in using the mac and fans were blazing, looked at system usage and everything was low same as doing plain browsing and file downloads.

    Maybe someone can shed some light? or had the same experience with OnLive?

    I use it on my 11" 2010 Air and the service is very good. I am not seeing my fans come on much or that it heats up much while playing. It feels about the same as browsing in Safari. The application does not seem too demanding since all of the heavy lifting is over their servers.
