    Disappointed that apple didn't make more progress on the MBA heat problem which has plagued this line from the get-go. I realize also this isn't entirely Apple's fault.

    It is apples fault, they are the ones that designed the case and the heat dissipation. unless of course that the cpu is hotter than its 17W TDP.

    Ivy bridge should be cooler and faster, we'll see how far to either side intel goes when it comes out, it could be a lot cooler but only a bit faster, or a lot faster and only a bit cooler.

    I'm not looking forward to the 2013 version, toll bridge. Same shape and form factor of the current airs, but one major difference: you have to swipe a credit card to get the screen open, and it charges you for the time you spend doing anything on your computer.

    I think I will buy the Ivy Bridge version of the MBA. I'd love to have the additional speed of Sandy Bridge version but with the coolness and battery life of my current C2D version. I hope that is what Ivy Bridge brings us.

    Getting hot is one thing. They all get hot. It becomes a problem when it exceeds the manufacturers specifications, it triggers a thermal shutdown, it burns your skin or it renders you infertile. THAT is a problem. The rest is just heat. :cool:

    I have the new 13", it keeps cool and quiet better than the 13" 2010 MBP I had before.

    No offence to anyone but everyone is after this Faster processor keyword. If you look at the stuff you do in general on a laptop even in today's time a Core 2 duo is sufficient.

    People who do a lot of heavy video editing and Photoshop need bigger displays and they have the iMacs so I don't see a reason why people complain all the time.

    I predict a similar number of posts will once again appear on this forum complaining about their Ivy Bridge MBA being too hot in about a year.

    Why are these threads already being made?

    How on earth is anyone going to know about this until they are released or intel provide more info on the CPUs?

    They already have

    We still don't know how well it translates to manufacturing and the core design, but the ivy bridge ULV is still a long ways out if they follow the same sandy bridge roadmap.

    Most of the heat issues were resolved with the Rev D, and the Rev E has improved performance without significantly increasing heat. Don't equate high CPU temperatures with "heat problems." The Rev A models frequently throttled down and ran below rated speeds because of heat. The Sandy Bridge Rev E models do not.

    That said, Ivy Bridge should run cooler. Intel is switching to a 22nm process (from the Sandy Bridge's 32nm design). The real breakthrough will be in 2013 or 2014 when Haswell is released, however. Intel committed to get its mainstream processor TDWs down to the 15-20 range (where the ULV chips are right now). That's the point of the Ultrabook concept. Intel expects that 40% of notebooks sold in Q4-12 will be Ultrabooks.

    For some reason, I think all of the people who are making these posts about heat problems with the current Macbook Air must be sitting naked with their computer on their lap doing... well I'll let you figure that much out.

    Put some clothes on!




    (Yes I realize my response to this is a bit silly, but I stand by the overall theme: there is no heat problem.)

    Watching flash pOrn whilst naked does indeed cause heat issues, but not quite as many as the 'splash back'.......





    Oh and I agree about heat. A heat issue would mean these machines are failing. We have had ZERO posts about MBA 2011 failures/melting/shutting down etc. They are not failing.. They are getting warm when people put them under load, which they are then surprised by this?
