Gaming on MBA 2013
A couple days ago, I got myself a 13" MBA 2013 model. I am a student, and I'm planning to use it as my "main machine." I figured the MBA isn't so bad for gaming. In fact I got CoD4 for OS X and I noticed how medium - high resolution gets me over 30 fps.
2013, 13" MBA, 256GB SSD. (The remainder is the base model: 4gb ram, i5)
My main concern is the following: gaming on mac, and MBA in particular makes the MBA get pretty hot (mainly above the esc & brightness keys, where probably the battery is located). Gaming drains the battery (obviously) a lot faster and heats up the device. So my question is: is it "bad" for the MBA to game on it? In that, can the heat cause any damage? Will the faster battery drain and the hard working fan "wear & tear" over time?
If possible, an answer by someone who has actually did gaming for a while on a MB would be ideal, thanks for any answers!
