I was wondering if it's okay to constantly watch movies on my new MBP Retina that I just bought. It doesn't seems to run hot at all but I need this computer for multiple different things. Does watching movies all the time damage the computer or can the laptop handle it?

I've been watching TV shows, playing games (World of Warships, WOT, emulators), movies, and more since I got mine (2015). My 2009 has probably been in worse situation encoding old DVD rips over night for my iPhones.

Yes, this is a stupid question. You bought a tool to use and is worried about it. You even consider buying another tool (iPad) for this particular usage. Will you consider buying another tool (iPad Mini, Apple TV, etc.) to replace the replacement tool (iPad)? This can go on and go and will never end.

If the tool does not do what you need to do then you either (1) bought the wrong tool (2) didn't research whether this tool is capable of doing what you need it to do.

Before I got an Apple TV and an actual big screen TV a few years ago, I was happy just using my MBP connected to an external monitor to watch movies and TV shows on. Never had a problem with doing this and the computer never overheated or anything.
