    I've done a search but couldn't find what I'm looking for.

    To any 13" MBP owners could you post your idle temps preferably via iStatPro?

    I'm interested to see how much cooler the system runs with the new 320M inside.

    Thanks.

    No idea since this is my first Mac. I had about 6 programs open and was browsing the internet using Firefox with about 5 tabs open. The air inside is about 72 degrees Fahrenheit.

    That's what i have. I have mine sitting on a textbook in bed and that is at idle. If i was streaming videos, CPU rises to 76C. I was actually kinda worried which is why I was searching it but it seems the MBP 13' gets pretty hot..

    Whats the fan speed you set using smcFanControl?

    Mine is set at 3500rpm and the temperature just hovers around 39 to 41 degree C.

    Not using smcFanControl or anything else. Fan speed @2000rpm. Ambient is 26C.

    I did re-apply the thermal paste though but it didn't make much difference. CPU was idling between 40 and 45.

    More or less around these numbers. I'm currently using itunes w/airtunes, adium, chrome and transmission, and my fans are default settings(about 2000rpm). It's usually around 45 degrees most of the time, and right below 40 when I idle. It seems noticeably cooler than the 2.4ghz BlackBook I upgraded from. But then again, it does just about everything that much better than my BlackBook did.

    However my fans are exhausting at 6200 rpm. This is a two week old MacBook Pro (13inch), and the fan noise does not sound normal to me; it seems very loud. I just took it to the Apple store, and after running all sorts of diagnostics they insisted that it was fine and "couldn't replicate the problem". Should the fans be running even when the computer has just started up, on a cool day?

    don't think they should be at 6000 rpm

    I actually tried to force my fan to speed up by running a grueling stress test on it last night and only after 75 degrees or so did the rpms kick in and the fan rested at 3500 rpm while the cpu was at a breezy 85 degrees

    normally as in now, my cpu is at 44 degrees and the fan just stays around 2000 rpm

    13" 2010 MBP here

    love my mbp, it's dead silent 95% of the time, not like those shizbox hp and compaq laptops I had before, it was like a jet engine trying to take off

    The 15" MBPs have two fans, whereas the 13" ones have only one.

    I have a late-2008 15" and a mid-2008 13" MBP. The 13" one can get hot and the fan is always on. RPM varies between 1999 and 6500.

    At those temperatures, the fans shouldn't even ben close to 6200rpm.

    Thanks!
    I took it back to the store and they agreed the fans are faulty. It helped quite a bit to have this baseline data.
