    Hi.

    My macbook air 2013 (1,3 Ghz intel i5, 4Gb RAM) is getting hot while I'm playing Dota 2. Is it OK?
    Does anybody have such problem? Can it be solved? Or maybe I shouldn't play?
    Help!
    Thanks.

    Any graphics intensive task on any computer will produce heat. Most laptop components can function at temperatures around 95 degrees Celsius. That will reduce the lifespan of the computer, but even at 80 degrees it should be perfectly acceptable. If your laptop is scalding you then you may have an issue. Other than that, heat is normal.
