I use my macbook pro to play video games, and it gets very hot, to the point where it hurts to touch. I was wondering if anybody knew of a way to help it stay a little cooler.
Thanks

yeah when i webcam and play games on my mbp its gets really hot as well. Best advice is to keep it on a cool surface with good airflow, maybe invest into one of those laptop cooling devices?
