    I have the Macbook Pro 15 inch i7 with the NVidia Gefore GT 330M. It seems to overheat even on basic games such as Torchlight. Often, after about 15 minutes, it will shut off. World of Warcraft seems to be unable to play without lowering all the settings. I want to send it back to the Applestore but I do not know how to recreate the problem. Whenever, I run benchmarks it seems to work fine, but it overheats often to the point that I can't touch it. In skype, for example, it often gets so hot that I have to shut down the computer and restart it. Does anyone know of any reason this should be happening? How do you I prove to the Apple Store representatives that it is faulty?(Will they even require me to?)

    They'll run tests. If it passes, I'd fire it up right there in the store and replicate the shutdown myself.
