Both the older MBPs and current MBAs have cooling silts along its display hinge, which in turn is directly above its keyboard, so it already doesn't have a lot of surface area for adequate cooling. But you know Apple will never sell a laptop if it cannot make it look sexy and high-end in the first place.

Apple's response to all these hoopla: You're cooling it wrong.

The current MBA doesn't seem to suffer from any cooling issues. Mine never gets particularly hot. But then, it's a ULV with a cooling fan and a completely metal chassis as a heatsink. Some vendors get away with fanless ULV products, so it's not surprising that it doesn't have cooling issues.

I can't comment on their higher-power notebooks, however. They may have cooling issues, for all I know. All I can say conclusively is that the current MBA does not.
