    Fan speeds
    Is it normal for the fan of the 13" aluminum macbook pro to reach 5000rpm (according to istat) when using graphic intensive applications? (i.e gaming)

    Specs:
    15in Unibody Macbook Pro Rev. F (2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 4GB RAM)
    Yes, very normal. If, for whatever reason, the system gets too hot even running the fans at full, it will shut down itself. There is no risk.
