    Yeah, this sounds like it would run way too hot. Anyone having trouble on that front?

    well, with my 200. I can honestly say it can get uncomfortably warm - sweaty legs, that's about it. No shut-downs as a result of overheating. So real problems don't exist for me.

    I'd agree with that. It can get VERY hot, but performance-wise it's been a dream. I use my MacBook as both a desktop and laptop though, so it's not an issue most of the time. If you're going to have it sat on your legs for long periods of time you may want to think twice.
