My question sounds a bit dumb.

My ibook is rather warm.
I put a simple thermometer on the palm rest just about my CPU, i think it is about 92F to 96F.
I am only running a web browser now.
Is this temperature normal?

92 degrees Fahrenheit = 33.3333333 degrees Celsius

96 degrees Fahrenheit = 35.5555556 degrees Celsius

according to google. As for a normal temperature i have no idea but 35 degrees celsius sounds high,Hakkinen wat is your room temperature at.

92 degrees, thats enough to create sweaty hands. I have an ibook g4, and the left side of the trackpad does get warm, but nowhere near 92. The only simply reason for such a high temperature reading would be that you're using your ibook in bed on top of a blanket or something that covers the fan.

I am using it on my table. I do not know why certain times it is warm, certain times it is not. And I am only surfing the net. Like now, it is not warm at all.

Not necessarily. My old iBook G4 got quite noticeably warm on the left palmrest -- just above the hard disc. Hakkinen, how much RAM does your iBook have? I found that once I upgraded to 640Mb (ergo, cutting out pageouts) the machine only gets warm when doing real work.

As a side, ThermographX rocks.

At www.bresink.de under the title:
What is the "normal" temperature for current CPUs? (near the end of the page)
Visit here (http://www.bresink.de/osx/DocsTemperatureMonitor/FAQ.html)

There you will find the maximum temperature for each G4 CPU model.
I hope this will help.

This happens to my wife all the time. She likes playing the Sims while in bed, as the computer is resting on blankets. She knows to lift the computer from time to time, but still, it gets toasty.

Hopefully Brap is right:

I ordered a 512MB chip from Crucial yesterday, and its already on the FedEx truck today :)
