    Just wondering if long-term gaming (2+ hours at a time?) will cause the Macbook to super-heat itself into a blob of molten aluminum-goodness.

    LOL (sorry I had to laugh at that last line) Here is what will happen:

    1. MBP will get very hot (possibly burn you legs off

    2. Fans will whir very loud

    3. CPU will automatically slow down to prevent over heating

    4. If you keep going even more the MBP will put its self to sleep

    I doubt you will get past step 2.

    --Cheers
