- MacBook Air (mid-2012) sports a new asymmetrical fan. The gaps between blades vary from 3.6 mm to 2.8 mm. The fan blades, arranged in “asymmetrical” pattern, disperse sound across a wide range of frequencies, thus making fan noise “hardly perceivable.”
- MacBook Air (mid-2012) features Core i7 processor, the top choice of the line, but the heat sink is too small for the processor of this class. Asymmetrical fan or no asymmetrical fan, overheating might present an issue here.
