My i7 2012 11" MBA hits 104 degrees celcius before the fans really kick in to do something about it. Sometimes when I'm watching movies the machine gets so hot that it siezes up completely, perhaps it's getting hotter than 104. This is completely unnacceptable. Is there a known issue, and what is apple doing to address it? My machine should not be completely seizing due to the heat.


Yes I've tried resetting the SMC and all that troubleshooting. I am a IT professional and work alongside a GSX Technician.

MacBook Air (11-inch, Mid 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.1), i7
