    Hey all,

    i have a 2 year old MBP running 10.5.7. I was just curious if its normal for my machine to heat up while watching video? For example, was just playing around with Hulu desktop and while watching, my machine went to about 160-163 F and the fans kicked on 4000-6000 rpm. is this normal?

    It's VERY normal during Flash playback. I'm surprised that you haven't encountered it many times before.

    It happens to me under Hulu. I can't feel full frames in full screen mode unless I boot into Windows. ;_;
