When I use CPU intensive programs, my macbook really overheats. I was doing quite a lot a day ago, Ripping a DVD in Handbrake, Transferring files wirelessly and Downloading a large file from the internet. I left the computer on my coffee table and went about doing other things, I came back and the macbook had melted the stain off my coffee table and the stain was stuck to the bottom of the mac. I was able to clean it off with a paper towel, but this seems a bit dangerous to have my mac this hot. Anyone else have any similar stories?
MacBook's and MacBook Pro's can become very hot under heavy CPU usage, which is considered normal operation, even if many users find that hard to believe. Unless you found your MacBook locked up and unresponsive, it's unlikely overheating.
