    I've had this Macbook for about 2 months now, but I've never really run a whole lot of video on it. I watched about 4 hours on Vimeo, and it got really hot. The battery fares pretty poorly, too, but I guess that's to be expected watching video.

    I installed ServerPress and Git last night, too.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    Those temps look normal for a MacBook Pro under load. MBPs and iMacs are renowned for running hot.

    So long as your CPU isn't reaching over 210F, you have nothing to worry about. The processor is rated for a maximum operating temp of 100C/212F.

    Regardless, your CPU would throttle before that temperature was exceeded anyway.

    Okay cool. I narrowed it down to the terminal running in the background. I wasn't even using it and it was running about 70 percent of the CPU? Is this normal?

    Not if you weren't running anything in it, no.

    Looks like I'm making a Genius Bar appointment...

    Waste of time for a one time issue.

    Has it happened again? Have you tried reinstalling macOS?

    It's very, very, very unlikely to be a hardware issue.

    Genius appointments are good for hardware issues as they'll refer your Mac for repair/replacement. For everything else, there's CMD+R.

    I'm going to open it again tonight to see if it still persists. All I did was install Git.
