    Hey guys,

    I have a 13-inch 2.26Ghz Macbook(white) with the Geforce 9400m graphics. I bought it in March and lately I am using often for downloading without shutting down most of the time. I used to operate it with microsoft but not anymore.

    Here is the question:
    is it normal core temp to sit as high as 110 - 135° ??? and when I am not operating, it sits around 108°???? when I check my CPU idleness, it usually stays about 85%. Is this normal?????? What should I do??:(

    If you use Fahrenheit, you most are likely experiencing summer right now.

    80°F is 26°C, 90°F is 32°C. You need to operate your Mac in a fridge to get those temperatures.

    You most likely read 80°C and 90°C, which is 176°F and 194°F. Current mobile CPUs can handle up to 105°C/120°C (221°F/248°F) under load.

    So to write it again, your temperatures are normal, as some of those threads I quoted from GGJstudios indicate.
