Which os version are you using?
How large is your hard drive and how much hard drive space do you have left?
For prolonged use, place your MacBook Pro on a flat, stable surface. Do not place your MacBook Pro on your lap or other body surface for extended periods of time. Prolonged body contact can cause discomfort and potentially a burn.

Your issue is not uncommon, try this as it has worked for some. Take soms 1"X1" (or so) strips of wood or HDPE, or as one user used 4 scotch caps of the same hight. This will raise the MBP off the flat surface and allow air to circulate around the whole unit, the exhaust is in the back, under the hinge, so keep this area clear. I built a laptop tray for my kid who dose a lot video, which generates plenty of heat, mentioned on apost and it seemed to solve the heat problem for quite a few. All the best, SJP

I'm using the latest version of mountain lion.
I have a 500gb hard drive with 260gb free.
Ram - I'm guessing thats the system memory from the activity monitor
I keep my laptop on a desk the majority of time

Bump. Curious to know if you had any further insights into this. I've noticed that when running Chrome and Safari simultaneously I'll experience system slowdown with the dreaded beachball popping up in other apps as well. Killing Safari or Chrome always makes things better: as long as I'm running just one, no problem. Both?Fuggetaboutit! I can't seem to find this problem documented elsewhere, and as you mention a three browser scenariou being common, wonder if running a single browser session improves things. --b
