    What are you doing on the machine? Also the temp reported is the actual CPU temp not the case.

    Run for your life. :) Are you doing something processor intensive? Check with Activity Monitor.

    Over 80 C is getting into the "too hot" category. Call Apple.

    Are you keeping your notebook on a hard surface (like a table)? Keeping it on a softer surface (e.g. bed, pillow, your lap) restricts airflow raising internal temperature.

    Your kidding right? 65 celcius is nothing compared to most other MBP's

    How do you check the temperature?

    Edit: Nevermind

    Request:

    Someone please provide the name of the widget/program that monitors CPU temperature of MacBook Pro series. iStat Pro and iStat Nano do not work on MBPs yet.

    FWIW, after you install CoreDuoTemp, both iStat widgets should be able to display the temperature.

    iStat won't display temps on my MBP and I haven't heard of any other getting it to work. As far as I know CoreDuoTemp is the only option.

    I wonder why?! :confused:

    Did you install the version of CoreDuoTemp that doesn't ask for your password the first time you use it after a reboot?

    My MBP is currently running at 64º with only Firefox (and AirPort Express) switched on. I've had it going up to 90º before, but just for fun...

    It's possible, although as you say mine is usually in the 50's while crunching away on stuff. Rosetta & heavy apps = 80+

    I did also notice during the firmware upgrade when the fan throttled up that the MacBook Pro at least is capable of moving much more air than it usually does. Perhaps some enterprising soul can devise a fan hack for those who run intensive apps and don't want to set their bed/trousers on fire.

    temp?

    Hello,
    I'm new to mac . . I have a macbook I just bought. How do I check the temp? It seems too hot to me, but it may be normal. How do I find out?

    Thanks for any insight.

    Terri

    Mid-60's

    Finding CoreDuo Temp to download wasn't the easiest thing to do, but I'm glad I did it - my Macbook is running in the mid- to low-60's with average useage (two or three apps running at the same time). Anyone routinely running the 80's - I would think - should be concerned.

    Running an Oracle Install, under parallels, which was close to maxing out the CPU, never brought my MBP past 32C.

    I am running the latest firmware, and purchased it about 2 weeks ago.

    This is on a wood desk, which helps. When I have it running on my lap, or on my bed, it will get in the 50-60s
