I was today converting a 10GB MKV movie File to MP4 using Handbrake I noticed it took more than 4 Hours and the CPU was constantly running hot, making noise and could sense that the fans were running and making sound. This was of course on my windows machine. But since I am soon planning to buy (Waiting for the 15" rMBP announcement at the WWDC) is this a problem on the Mac if someone is constantly converting files using Handbrake and using Handbrake quite often. (Since Handbrake consumes battery, runs cpu hot, makes fan work and make noise etc...)is it good for the health of the MAC to be used in these conditions ?
