So. I just noticed this recently in one of my paranoid stints where i watch the temp. monitor all the time. when i got my powerbook ( 17" 1.5ghz G4, 2GB ram, 80GB HD ) in 2004 it usually ran around the 110 - 120F range. when i upgraded to tiger, and 2GB of ram, i noticed that it started to average about 126F ( thanks to mini CPU heat widget for telling me ) now, when i use the laptop under average load on its own, i average 115-126F. but when i connect it to my delll 2405fpw display it almost instantly heats up to 130F+ ive seen it as high as 136F! is this normal for a laptop to heat up a whole lot when powering an external display? because that is just WAY too hot, i touched the bottom once and it nearly seared my skin. For the record, when in the office, i keep the laptop elevated on an iCurve the entire time, so it gets plenty of airflow. right now it is running at 118F. with no display attached. any insight?
