i wanna know how any help?
Sit it on a flat and level desk. Open up Word. Stare at it for three hours and then, whilst slowly taking off your shirt, start making moo noises. The moo attracts wolves, but you don't do it for long so it shouldn't matter. Now, with one finger outstretched, touch the middle of the bottom of the laptop. Scream out the first number that comes into your head, and this is how you find the MacBook temperature.
Or use CoreDuoTemp.
this app will tell you you temp and can put a display in you menu bar
I have nothing to add for the OP, but this was funny!
Depends on if you want to case temp or the CPU temp. If you want the case temp buy a non-contact infrared thermometer. As a side bonus, you can have literally minutes of fun pointing it at other stuff.
what is a safe temp for the computer? i feel my MBP getting very hot sometimes. i always figured this was normal though.
are there and apps for the new i5 13 mbp to check the temperature?
iStat Pro, a Dashboard widget.
http://www.apple.com/downloads/dashboard/status/istatpro.html - Check this dashboard widget out. Some guys already mentioned it, shows lots of other cool stats too!.
Is there any default way OS X already has of doing this? The programs you guys recommended just take what information the system is already putting out and display them for you (much like how Coconut Battery just takes information readily available from System Profiler and just displays it better). Does OS X already have a built in program for this? I looked through System Profiler and it didn't seem to be there.
I stat pro, i think its a great add-on.
Would highly recommend it.
atMonitor is perfect for displaying your Macbook temperature along with other useful info. It is well regarded and free! It can be run from the menubar, so that you can see the tempature while doing other tasks. It has also been updated for Lion.
You can find it here: http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/30533/atmonitor
iStat Menus is just as good for me too. It's sexy but it's not as centralized as iStat Pro though.
