Do any of you lads use a macbook air to play RuneScape on? I was stupid enough to buy macbook air instead of pro, and I think that was a rather bad decision. At the time I bought it I didn't play any games, so therefore I took the one with the best battery capacity.. 

 

Once I play RuneScape on my macbook, it gets extremely hot after only a few minutes. It also sounds like an F-16 trying to take off. Is this normal? Is there any settings I can change? Any advice would be gladly accepted!

So it won't hurt my computer in any way? It won't "age" faster and become useless in a year or two?

Normally when something heats its a sign of over heating depending on how warm it gets, im not so sure on future damage but it could end up switching itself off once it gets to a certain point.

Yea I got a MacBook Pro Retina screen and I can't play more than 1 window or RS, plus it overheats badly at just that. It also has a shitty graphics card so that may contribute to it. I bought a USB laptop stand that dispels cool air when it is connected but that made my laptop overheat even more ##

 

I also can't use OSB because it goes fucking insane.

No idea why people buy Apple, my 500$ Acer has better specs than a 1000$ MacBook... :Kanyesup:

 

 

But yeah, you might be able to screw open to bottom and get all the dust out. It can also help to lift up the laptop by placing some small objects under it, so the heat can get away more easily.

I used to play in the air. It will over heat if you play to much. The pro does the same. Mac just seems to struggle with games

I regret buying a Mac from the second I walked out of the store. I bought it for the battery capacity when I went back to school again. Biggest bummer of my life!

I have a MacBook Pro and I have to say mine sounds more like an F/A-18.

 

I wouldn't worry about it, my CPU runs at around 95 C, it's annoying but it won't do any permanent damage.

 

The worst thing is trying to get help while Windows fanboys talk shit.

 

How do you like the Air? I love my Pro, other than playing games it's miles better than any Windows laptop I've had, I also look cool at organic coffee shops.
