    When I play TF2 on my new 2.53ghz MBP, the heat of the left side of the case is very unpleasant.

    This is particually because of the aluminium around the WASD keys is extremely hot after about 15 mins of playing, and it becomes uncomfortable very quickly.

    This is with the fans running at 6000 RPM. This seems quite ridiculous to me that pushing this computer to it's full potential means that is starts to burn your fingers.

    Yep.

    Those keys are above the processor / graphics hotspot, and it is normal. There are also a few threads already up regarding heat on the new MBP during gaming.
