    FYI: Holding your macbook pro in your lap with normal clothes on will hurt. Painful heat. Had to move it. Had nothing to insulate it with, so I set it on the ground.

    Normally its only really hot on top, by the screen where I never touch. This was crazy hot all over rendering SWF in After Effects.
