Apple AnandTech dove into the mystery behind the small processor in the MacBook Air. "Earlier this week Apple announced its MacBook Air, and within hours we had the mystery of its '60% smaller' CPU uncovered. Or at least we thought. It turns out there's even more depth to the CPU in the MacBook Air, it's even less conventional than we originally thought. Here's what happened over the past couple of days."

i own both a macbook and a macbook pro. Both run prettty hot. I work support too, i deal with all kinds and brands of laptops. Apple laptops run hotter than average for sure.

the macbook is better than the macbook pro imho in that regard because the plastic doesnt feel as hot as the alu.

Sorry for the possible typos, im typing this on my iphone.

I went to Macworld on Wednesday so they had all of the demo Macbook AIr's on display. I was absolutely amazed and blown away at how cool they ran! I have a 12" Powerbook G4 currently and it can get pretty warm while running.

The Air was amazing though. It was hardly even luke warm and they had been on and being used all day by the horde of people who couldn't wait to get their hands on them.
