Like 40? What about the fans?

Think average sites like this or Engadget.

Upper 40's to low 50's with the fan's between 2500 and 5000 rpm. Now that is with Mail open, Surfing with Firefox and usually at least either Pages or Numbers open. I keep the Airport turned off when I'm not on wi-fi and instead use a laptop connect card if that matters. That is after 6 months of use so I feel those numbers are fairly accurate.

50-60 Degrees and fans run hard all the time.The fans kick up very easy.

Average sites, not flash heavy sites is what the OP is asking about.

Mine stays cool as long as I am not using youtube. Fans are silent, again as long as I am not watching youtube videos (though, for some reason Hulu.com is MUCH better on my Rev A than youtube. After about 10 minutes of youtube the computer is at full fan speed and bottom is hot, but with Hulu.com I can watch a full 45 minute episode without the fans kicking up to full notch and the bottom getting as hot, and that is in full screen mode). For me, the fans stay silent/cool for 90% of all my web browsing. The other 10% is youtube or other heavy flash sites. Still works perfectly, just the bottom is hotter and the fans are going full speed.

42-45 degrees

Fan 2500

My Rev A has always run cool... Heats up and fans kick in when running video or flash - but not too badly. My new Rev B does the same - although the temps are less as are the fan speeds.

I run about 130 degrees F and the fan speed is between 2500-4500 depending on what the temp in the room is. Its winter now, so normally my fan speed is low. During the summer, it always is over 3500.

Mine is 109F and about 2500rpm. Is everybody else posting "Celsius" v. Fahrenheit? If that's the case I'm running 46C :confused:
