Hi all, First time posting on here, not new to macs but I don't know much about computers in general. I got the titled laptop as new with 8GB RAM, NVIDIA 1GB graphics card and a Core i7 processor. Seemed like it'd be able to do more or less whatever I wanted, and it does, except for when I play one of the two games I own. I don't have an xbox or other console, and only play World of Warcraft with a friend and Diablo 3 as I loved Diablo 1 and 2. I previously owned a 2010 13 inch Macbook pro, but didn't expect much due to the intel graphics. So when it got hot (105*C +) at the lowest game settings on WoW, and was visually laggy on D3 I was not surprised. However, the 15 inch pro likes to get hot too, which made me a bit surprised and upset. Because even though it can play D3 on near max settings without visual lag, it shot up to above 100 with the fans at max and stayed there. I was too worried to see what would happen if I played in a party, so I set the settings to lowest. Even with that, it still sits in the high 90s/low 100s. Same thing with WoW, at near lowest settings it remains very hot. So my question is, even though the computer can operate those games at near max settings without visual lag (basically, using it's capabilities to have a nice experience), am I doomed to play games occasionally at their lowest settings to extend the life of my computer? Even though it was made to perform without fault at far greater standards? Seems like a complete waste of money to buy a laptop if you want to play any fairly modern game at what seems performance-wise comfortable settings, only to have heating issues. Don't get me wrong, I know laptops have heating issues when asked to do some work, and I wouldn't buy anything other than a Mac (been using them since the Macintosh SE), I'm just a bit disappointed... It did cost a lot, lol.
