    My computer always seems to be running pretty hot when I play WoW, at least 135F, and the fan is going like a turbine. Anybody know how hot they can get, or if I should even be concerned? (it's not overclocked or anything)

    That's quite normal...

    My iBook G4@800 runs at about 48°C (118°F) when I'm just using Safari (without entering sites with flash contents) and Mail...

    When I fire up iTunes and start using AirTunes the temperature hits about 58°C (136°F).

    And when ripping CDs, playing games, using Classic or surfing pages with flash contents the temperature reaches about 66-67°C (150-152°F) and the fan kicks in...
