    hi i have a 12" rev b PB but in the past few days i have noticed that on the left wrist rest (above the hd) has been hotter than i heve ever felt it to be before. i have also noticed that the fan has been coming on far more often. thempertaure monitor showed that it was running as high as 58C when i was just on the internet, listening to music, nothing too strenuous last night. i know in the past few days it has been pretty hot outside (like mid to high 20's) but would it make that much of a difference? could this be a warning sign that something is wrong with my hd or laptop in particular?

    Nothing wrong. Get used to it, the 12"PB gets hot. (and make sure you have some insulation between it and your skin if you have it on your lap)
