    I have a usb cooler for laptop computer and it work like a charm on my MBP for cooling.

    However when I take my MBP out I don't want to carry the cooler around. Therefore I was wondering if MBP is viable for gaming without a cooler.

    1-2 hours max? Because the thing can probably cook some eggs when it heats up. 0.0

    It's fine to use for gaming without a cooler. The computer will shut itself down if it gets too hot but the fans should be enough to cool it to below that high of temps.

    Just don't put it on your lap and you should be fine, no egg would be hurt.

    also dont block the vents in the back. i noticed when i played a game and it was on my bed it was considerably hotter just from laying on blanket. when its on a flat surface it will still run hot but you can actually touch it :D
