Scorching hot while updating applications!

I was downloading a few updates for pages, keynote and numbers and I was also watching Netflix and had Spotify running at the same time, my laptop started to get extremely hot, no fans, but I quit the Spotify app and the App Store app and now it's cooled off, should I be worried? Is it normal for it to overheat while installing updates?

It's properly ventilated, I have a fan-pad thingy to put it on. I don't think I was blocking the fans.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

No it is not n-ormal to overheat. I would get it in to an Apple Store for a check up. I also take out an additional 2 years of AppleCare warranty on any Apple product I have problems with within the first year.

I would suggest also blowing out the vents with a can of air.
