    thats normal, gaming is a procesor taxing thing so you should expect an increase. that being said if you are uncomfortable with that you can find cooling solutions if you want to be extra safe.

    i have an iBook, what kinda cooling solutions is available? is there any? Kinda freacking out cause that temp is a lot higher than any that ive read about in the forums. i remember someone saying 55 degrees C was on the high side.

    you can get cooling stands for your laptop -- some will just elevate the computer, increasing airflow; some have built-in fans. i know macmice has a selection, but i've never bought anything from them so i can't really advise you on their service/quality.

    i'm sure there are other places with similar products as well.
