but seriously....

I find it hard to believe your Mac is on fire. it would have shut off long before it got hot enough, unless you set it alight yourself.

turn it off, and unplug it. not much you can do if you didnt check what you were buying before you bought it.

If you find a post helpful, don't forget to use the reputation system (top right of post.)

Yes - it's normal. No worries. It's still safe to use in your lap.

Yep, that's completely normal.
This is for smokers, so they don't have to reach for a match or lighter.
Don't think this means that you won't need an ashtray though!

At Mac-Forums, it's important that everyone is treated with respect, even those you might disagree with on a topic.

First thing you need to do is stop typing and turn the thing off.
