    The first review I read that was two stars said it was not good for long term use in the case as it gets WAY too hot !

  • I've been using this daily for a good 6 to 8 hours per day and have not experienced any heat issues whatsoever. I'm using an 11" Macbook Air purchased September, 2013. Hope this helps.

  • I've been using the BookBook for my Macbook AIr 213 for a month, and I never had any problem with it. My MBA doesn't overheat in it. At first I was concerned about this issue too but not anymore. I think this is the best protection for my MBA. But if you are really scared of getting your MBA overheat, you can always take it out and put the BookBook under your MBA, that's what I do when I'm at home.

    One more thing, don't forget to be careful when you are closing or opening the zipper to avoid any scratches on the sides of your MBA. I don't have any but there's no wrong in being extra careful. I hope this helps.
