    I was just wondering that playing counter strike global offensive can harm my MacBook? P.S.(I play one and a half hour daily)

    No. Why would you think that it would be hurt, that is if it can play the game to start with?

    What a bizarre question. The answer is no btw.

    Playing Counter Strike for an hour and a half a day, every day, will do more damage to you than to your computer.

    Uhh, I think the OP was thinking about the game causing too much over-heating on his MBP. That's what immediately got my attention the moment he mentions playing a game on a laptop. I think that was the gist of what the OP was concerned about. The OP should elaborate a bit more.

    Anyways, I can't answer him directly, since I no longer own Mac laptops (I stick to iMacs for my desktop these days). Nor do I know if CSGo is considered a "graphics-intensive" shooter game by the standards of a 2012-12014 Mac hardware, as I don't play that particular game.

    CS:GO isn't very intensive at all, it uses an updated Source engine. My brother plays it on his crappy PC so I think a mid 2012 MBP will handle it just fine without damaging itself or whatever the OP is afraid of.

    In all seriousness though, if a game/app that requires a lot of resources (and that runs) does end up damaging your machine, then shame on the hardware manufacturer.

    I believe the OP means wear and tear over time. Computer parts overheating then eventually wearing down maybe making it weaker or eventually break down.
