First, you ought to run an app which is going to give you objective temp information, like istat.
I don't know what you mean by "scolding hot". What temp are you seeing on the processor?

Did the machine shut down? If not, why worry about what your perceived temperature of the unit was?

It did not shut down, and I used an app from the app store called temperature gague and I also use fan control to verify that one. It was reading 208 F. I usually have only seen it get to 185 on my other models of computers. But I have never had an Air, and I think its because there is just less room for air flow and it only has one fan, unlike my MBP 15". So I think i just had false expectations. I am enjoying it now. Do either of you know what the shutoff temp is? or what you would expect it to be? I was thinking like 225...but I want your best guesses.

Only Apple really knows.
Also note that unless the app was specifically tested with the new generation of MacBook Airs, it could be reporting wildly inaccurate readings.

Maybe so, but when I am using it on the web and doing normal light tasks the temp stays around 95-130 depending on if I'm using plug-ins or not which is exactly what I would expect and have gotten with my other machines. So I don't think it would be wildly inaccurate at the upper end of the temp scale. (Not saying that is not possible, but I would think its unlikely). Thanks though for your input, I guess I will wait untill it breaks or Apple says "oops" and does a REP. It seems to handle a heavy load well now that I have had a chance to play with it more. It still gets like 205, but even using near 100% CPU or playing games it never gets any hotter.
