above the function keys, where the monitor is perpendicular to the keyboard, its getting very very hot. its becoming almost untouchable (while being in a air conditioned room). is this normal for the macbook? it gets this way when watch a movie or play a game. am sure this is very unhealthy for the macbook, is there anyway this can be fixed? thanks for the help

It's completely normal. This is one of the areas where the casing wicks the heat away from the innards of the machine. If there were a problem, your MBP would shut itself down automatically.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Search the forum and you will find tons of threads on this issue.

I think this should be a sticky thread. I too have come to this forum to seek answers on the heat issue.

That's a good sign; it means the heat is been drawn from the inside of the computer and been dispersed (you'll notice it more with aluminium over plastic, because aluminium is a better heat conductor). Like cwa107 said; if it gets too hot, it'll just shut itself off.
