    Hey everyone, I just bought a 15 inch MBP earlier this week. Everything has been wonderful except when I'm using video chat, the bottom of my pc gets ridiculously hot.

    I am using G-Vid chat. Anyone else notice these issues?

    There is no issue, Mac's run hot. Video chat will work any CPU. The computer has to record the image, encode it, and send it out many time a second. Video chat also will activate the dedicated graphics card. All long as your CPU doesn't go over 210F your fine.
