    Just turned it on, and am performing some updates. The fan is spun up, sounds like a hurricane over here, and the bottom of the machine is excessively hot. Certainly wouldn't want to use it on my lap.

    Oh, sorry, forgot to mention: I'm talking about my MacBook Air. Wrong forum?

    :)

    Yep I can verify those conditions on mine... measured 78 decibels of fan noise but mine sounds like a jet engine. You don't want that with you in a meeting... you'll get death stares.

    Yes indeed!

    But it's an awesome post... this forum is about ONE device (well, family of devices) and so I think at least me personally, you get so focused on the few issues that the Surface has, you forget that these exact same things are standard operating procedure on other devices!

    Great morning laugh, thank you!

    So that's what they mean by Apple fan-boys.
