    Yes, you read that right. 90C using FCP. I had the power attached and power settings on better performance.

    I have the MBP raised up on a book to get a little more air flow.

    I'm worried.

    Don't want to send it in for repair when Apple won't fix it
    Don't want to open it up myself and void my warranty.

    Blah. 1st revision blues.

    Mine regularly gets to the high 80's under full CPU load. Personally, I'm not going to worry about it unless it breaks. If it gets too hot then it'll just shut itself off.

    This logic makes no sense. If it gets too hot and turns itself off there is a serious problem with either the computer or you living in Hell. Under normal operating conditions, no computer should ever turn off by excessive heat because excessive heat should never happen. That's why you have fans and circulation in the computer. You just spent 2k + and you are willing to accept that melting your mbp internal components is alright?

    citi is right...

    I have never seen a computer get to 90 degrees like that, that's unreal my friend....pushing the boiling point. A computer should never shut itself off to prevent heat damage. Get that thing looked at my man.:)

    Well, nothing broke by the sound of it, so I'm not sure I see the problem. If the laptop didn't shut off then it must be within what has been defined as normal operational temperatures.

    can you install final cut pro on your MBP, my friend told me that the graphics is not compatible (something related to PCI/AGP or something like that)..

    Final Cut Pro is quite snappy on a MBP, actually. The recent update to 5.1 has it running native on Intel chips. PCI and AGP don't come into play, from what I can tell. :)

    Melting? The Core Duo is rated to operate at over 100°C. The computer will turn itself off because the temperature sensors hit over x°C, not because it's breaking.

    I think melting was said as a figure of speech. It reaches x°C and shuts off so it doesnt go up any more and scorch the innards...which I say, raises a flag.

    Core Duo rated to operate at 100°C+...that's interesting to hear...but in any event...a computer should not turn itself off due to heat. As has been said before, a $2500+ machine should not turn itself off...only you pressing the power button should.

    I couldnt imagine losing a project 'cause Final Cut Pro causes a heat increase...the MBP would just shut off...no dialog box saying "Sorry master, I must shut off cause I'm too hot up in here." I'd be livid.

    forgive me if I misread what you are stating.

    This thread shows what is causing the absurd heat, it's hardly normal operation doing this.

    90C is within the operating temperature ranges of the Core Duo processor.
