    Which one will make more heat and more noice, between newest MBA and MBP?
    MBP: 15inc retina, 2.3GHZ i7, 8GB w/ flash-drive.
    MBA: 13inch......., 1.8GHZ i5, 4GB w/ flash-drive.

    Compared with:
    1. Little use (few fans on browser + mail + skype).
    2. Normal use: watching a video, playing and old, simple game (asking for pentium 2 or something like that).
    3. Hard use: playing newer game, watching HD video.

    thx for you comments.

    They are both about the same, heat and noise wise. I had a MBA now I have a rMBP....they are both silent until you start doing intensive applications, then the fans kick on and they are about the same noise level. The rMBP can spin the fans a lot faster before you will hear them, however.
