    It depends on whether I'm making it for my iPod or just a basic file. The basic files take a shorter amount of time; maybe 40 minutes. The iPod ones take over an hour.

    Sorry to bump this up,

    but I was wondering if the new macbook pro's can rip DVD's faster than older macbooks.

    Any one tried to rip a DVD movie on a 2012 and later macbook pro? How long does it take?

    It all depends on the CPU, haswell macs will be a lot faster than others older models especially pre 2011. I gave up on handbrake years ago cos I use the excellent windows only xmedia recode which uses multicore, AVX, AVX2 plus open cl using my GPU, can strip out the h264 video and remux the audio only and so so much more...

    I have a mid 2012 MacBook Pro with internal cd drive. Core i7 with 8gbs of ram. Handbrake takes about 35 minutes for a 2hr movie using Apple TV 3 settings

    Does it run crazy hot when you try this? Mine sounds like its going to blow working at 100% capacity

    Mine gets hot also I use a laptop cooler and the fans do Run when he gets about 30% into the process. The laptop cooler helps a lot cheap investment maybe 20 bucks

    Totally normal, the CPU is running at 100% so the fans are going to be loud and it's going to get hot. A computer will not kill itself, if it gets too hot it will throttle back or in very extreme cases just shutdown.

    As it should. That's perfectly normal. Power generates heat, that's just how physics work.

    OP: You're more likely to be limited by drive read speed than by the processor itself, so really, it depends on how fast your DVD drive is.

    On my 2011 iMac with i7, it takes around 20 minutes for a 90 minutes DVD, using the standard settings.

    I have this assumption that if you make your laptop work that hard it will break or die very early in its lifetime.

    Indeed, one of my internal components, a wire covering, has melted believe it or not! I believe its the wire the connects the motherboard to the display

    I personally disagree, computers are made to be used and they have built in ways of staying cool enough.
