Post your temp. and fan speed! (Unibook Owners PLX)

Pretty simple. Watch this AWESOME Toy Story 3 trailer in HD full screen and post your Temperature + fan speed afterwards (specs too if possible ).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5f-MYl-HzNw

Temp: 77 Celcius
Speed: 4219 RPM

Specs:

White MacBook, 2.1Ghz, 4GB Ram, 120GB HD

I just want to see how different a unibody MB does.
Thanks

Cause Toy Story is AWESOME?!?!

Well that and I'm tired of my MacBook fan always sounding like a plane and was wondering if the unibody MacBooks were better. Apparently they are.

Yes. I also have the Bodyguardz thin film cover and the Incase hardshell cover. And I am relieved that both together do not cause too high a temperature.

am not starting anything please leave it at that.

i notice my MB heats up more than any of my other PC intel base laptops,

mine went from 60C 3200 rpm to 72C and 6200 rpm.. am looking at my laptop and dont see any intake vents, the exhaust come out right in front of the lcd screen, not a very smart design am thinking.. i cannt remember seeing vent holes in the keyboard,.

176F=80C, which is pretty hot. By that time my Unibody would be up around 4500-5000rpm and climbing from past experiences.

76 centigrade, 2004RPM. The fans seem very reluctant to come on under SL.

Unibody 2.0GHz MacBook. Nowdays my MacBook seems to barely turn on the fan until the temperature is well over 80
