    When playing games do macbooks get hot?
    Hi, I was wondering after reading some stuff on the net. Do macbooks (white, may 2010) get really really hot when playing games?

    Thank you.

    Of course. All notebooks and laptops get hot during heavy usage. Use it on a table or with a lap desk and don't worry. It's normal. It won't overheat - it'll shut down before it ever gets hot enough to do any damage.
