    My macbook pro heats up a lot , at the area right under the screen , it's even hard to keep your hand in contact with that area for too long because of heat, is this normal ?
    any suggestion what to do to fix it ?
    Thanks

    Do you have it on charge whilst using it? Reason am asking is that my friend used hers whilst constantly on charge and it literally buckled with overheating

    In my experience, it only heats up when I'm using CPU/GPU intensive applications. Take HandBreak for instance, it's a guarantee that my mid 2012 MBP would heat up when I'm converting a file.

    3D games would also make your MBP run hotter, even Gameloft's Order & Chaos does it.

    I don't know what is wrong with my mac exactly , it gets really hot , it blistered a table , took it to a genius and they couldn't find anything else, asked me to screen temp reading , it reads around 85-92 which supposedly normal , but the black thing under than screen gets really hot , u can't hold your fingers on it for too long
