Does the New MacBook Air Have a Problem?

new macbook airOwners of Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) newly released MacBook Air laptops are reporting a volume fluctuation issue during video playback. According to MacWorld UK via Apple Insider, some users are claiming that the volume will unexpectedly and randomly change while any video is played.

Other users note that the issue seems most pronounced when they attempt to set a mid-range volume. However, if they turn the volume very loud or very quiet, the volume seems to stabilize. The problem appears to manifest across multiple applications.

Users have reported the issue while playing videos in native applications such as Quicktime, as well as third-party apps like Google’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Chrome. Fortunately for Apple fans, it appears to be an easily fixable software glitch and a not a more serious hardware problem.
