    That's the average temperature on my G5 for just being idle most of the time.

    There seems to be a lot of worrying going on about temperatures on these forums. Is it well known that Macs fry themselves or something?!

    Generally speaking you'll know when your computer gets too hot, it'll stop working ;)

    Everyone just needs to stop downloading temperature widgets. If your computer ever shuts down from heat, then maybe you need to deal with it. Otherwise, just calm down. Way down.

    70-90 celsius? That's really pretty hot for idling... I hope you're going by farenheit.

    My iBook processor is 115 F right now, and the case is barely warm to the touch. All I'm doing is listening to iTunes while surfing the web and downloading some files.

    Not quite, but close. Didn't know if you were too cheap to afford a stove.

    I regularly cook on my MBP. The aluminum case is nonstick.

    You don't. You don't need tyo know them. If you have a heat problem you need to talk to Apple, if you don't then you need not think about heat at all.
