    Let me just say this a fantastic device. Beautiful screen and Fast!
    The computer fans work well and are fairly quiet, however, the keys around 5 and 6 on the keyboard can get pretty warm. The CPU is right underneath them, so it only happens when the computer is under a good load.

    This isn't dissimilar to the 2011 MBP when under load.

    I didn't know that. I haven't used a 2011 MBP before.

    This thing is lighter, faster, and thinner than my 2010 13 inch MBP!

    It is definitely lighter, faster, thinner, and more quiet than my 2006 13" MB! lol

    Does it get hot when watching youtube videos or watching movies at full HD 1080p?

    I haven't tried youtube yet.

    Doesn't seem like youtube videos are prone to do it.

    This was one of the first things I noticed when I started playing Diablo on my RMBP. I don't think it's an issue at all or anything, but I agree I experienced the same thing

    It isn't an issue yet, just an observation.
