Heat from gaming on a PowerBook G4?

in General Discussion edited January 2014
I have a Powerbook G4. I know that this model is prone to some heat problems. I was wondering if gaming on it would generate enough heat to cause long-term reliability issues? I have an iLap stand for it.

Basically, I'm wondering if it's okay to install Warcraft 3 on my Powerbook. I like gaming, but not enough to justify possibly hurting the computer.

    hurting the computer

    Playing a game might wear the machine out more but it's hard to say. Sometimes machines work better when you stress them a bit.

    I have a powerbook and I fry it all the time with 3D stuff.

    You will not hurt the computer, what's hot for you is fine for it.
