    I'm usually the first person to tell someone that laptops get hot and fans spin up. I need some advice for once.

    I'm going to be running Handbrake 24/7 for about 7-8 days. Does anyone have any experiences with this? I've taken my Macbook's shell off and it's sitting on my tabletop with no obstructions to the vents. Yes the fans are at 6200 RPM but it doesn't bother me since I don't sleep in the same room. ;)

    Should be fine. I rendered a Blender animation on my dad's MacBook (full CPU for 3 days solid) and it was fine with it...

    I'm only on day two of encoding my DVD's. I ordered a 320 GB laptop drive too! :D

    I hover between 167-183° F.
