I have an early 2013 15" Retina MBP.


It's actually the second one I've had, the first had ghosting issues, which eventually led to the machine being replaced.


When I'm using Skype and sharing my screen, the fans go crazy. Earlier they got up to 6,000RPM. I don't know whether this is normal or not, but I don't remember the old one or my Macbook Air doing the same.


The fans also go slightly crazy when watching videos on Youtube etc.


I've attached a screenshot of the stats, although it was taken a minute or so after I'd finished with my client and the fans had slowed a little.


Based on the temprature of my machine, is the fan speed normal?


Is this kind of activity normal?


The end of the power adapter that plugs in to my Macbook also gets baking hot. As though it's been under a flame!




MacBook Pro with Retina display, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
