    I have had my macbook pro for about 2 months now...sure i noticed it was sorta hot...but 2nite...while working in photoshop, flash, dreamweaver, had itunes on, chattin on ichat and safari open...i HEARD the fans kickin like never before and when i turned the music down i felt the bottom on the MBP (it was on the desk) it was so hot!!!!!!! could have burned my hand!!!!!!! as soon as i shut down all apps except safari and ichat...IMMEDIATELY the fans got quieter and the heat appeared to cool down a BIT...

    it was really weird...any ideas? any word what apple thinks?

    sound off!

    Put simply, doing lots of stuff makes processors hot.
