    I've loved my MBA from day 1. No complaints, aside from the space bar breaking, but that was quickly fixed. No issues with fans. Noticed it ran a little warm, but nothing extreme.

    But it was winter!! It was cold outside. Heck, I probably welcomed the added warmth from my MBA. But now that it's 90+ degrees outside(we're having a heat wave in NYC), I am sweating bullets using this machine in my lap. I want to love you, MBA. I just don't want 3rd degree burns from you.

    I had this same situation yesterday with mine in my apt. Yes it's too damn hot here in nyc right now. But my friend next to me was using his pro and it felt like a fireball. He couldn't even put it on his lap. My roommate later asked how it kept so cool -he was impressed.

    I was worried the sweat on my legs would damage it though.

    I just aim a fan at me + the Air and it works fine...

    The heat in NYC this week is brutal though.

    I was playing with a friend's macbook pro this weekend, and trust me, the heat that the air generates is nothing comapred to the mbp....the underside was scalding....
