    Was wondering if anyone has the experience with watching youtube or flash content on retina 13 inch MBP.. I have noticed that the back center heats up quite a bit?

    anyone with similar experience?

    Are there any heating issues with 13 inch retinas?

    Thank Flash, and the fact the 13" uses integrated graphics.

    Flash and OSX have never gotten along, your MB is fine.

    :confused: Maybe it's me, but I have no problems whatsoever.
    I watch on a regular base HD video's on Youtube, but my rMBP doesn't get hot and the fans don't kick in (in a manner that I can hear it).
    I do have the extension Youtube5 installed!

    When I watch HD video on Youtube my 15" rMBP definitely gets very warm. Someones warm enough that I need to reposition it on my lap.

    Watching Netflix makes me CPU run at 20%, pretty funny. And it does get warm.

    Maybe I misunderstood something the man who was going to repair my OLD MBP said...

    ...correct me if I am wrong, but I thought I heard that watching videos from youtube caused errors. It was also said either on this site or from the same repairman... that going outside to use your notebook (weither or not its a MB (the old 'whitey'), MBP, or MBA) outside caused errors.

    I assume the errors are now fixed, I'm waiting for someone to be here to set up some kind of account so I can sell my old MBP online.

    My computer heats up whenever it's being used.

    If you computer never heats up you're doing it wrong. ;)
