Any heat issue on new 13" MBA?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I think I am going to replace my 4 years old 15" Core Duo MBP with the new 13"MBA
Do you guys think the $100 upgrade to faster processor is worth the money?
And this is very important, does it generates lots of heat? My old MBP cooks my thighs.....

I'm also interested in this subject. I'm about to buy the best MBA (13" with the 2.13 GHz CPU and 4 GB ram).

I'm concerned about the heat issues that may occur with the fastest processor.

To save some $, I may stick with the default CPU (1.86 GHz + 4 GB ram), though. I'm not sure yet.

If the machine works well, I intend to stay with it for a very long time (5 years and more...). I hope it will be robust enough.

Those who saw the 13" in real, what about the case robustness ? Is it sturdy enough ? This thing looks so thin, it looks fragile !


Any opinion on this ?
