    Okay, my MBP gets pretty hot. Not uncomfortably hot (its on my lap right now and its been running games for the last two hours) but hot enough for me to go "wow, thats hot" like paris hilton or something.
    Anyway, It's not bad now and It keeps me warm like a small aluminum balnkie. I am begining to wonder though, what happens when sumer rolls around? I rarely use the A/C and it gets, on average, 100 degrees here on Cali.
    Will my MBP be overheating left and right?

    According to Apple, it's Operating Temp is up to 95 degrees F, and storage can be up to 113 degrees F (although it can probably go higher). You should be fine.

    Apple does give you a certain operating temp to keep it within.

    so yea i am guessing they dont suggest you running it in 100 and up heat.

    plus the humidity wouldnt help the situation either.

    Good thing I life in the fracking desert.
    With a new baby in the house I am betting that we will use the A/C, if anything to take the edge off...
    Does Apple post humidity levels, also? What is the average humidity of Buenos Aires, Argentina around april?

    Is Paris Hilton considered to be hot? I never would've guessed, and I'm not kidding.

    So far my MBP has been getting a bit warm, just like my PB, but not hot. I haven't tried playing games for a couple of hours on it yet, though.

    She is FAR from hot.
