    I have the new 2.4ghz macbook, and one thing I have notice (proally due to the aliminum casing) is that my hands sweat more than usual.

    could it caused by excessive heat from the alumninum or just my imagination? i had the previous white 2.2 ghz macbook and never noticed this before.

    my specs right now: 2000rpm , 58C, 18% HD, 69% Ram, CPU 4%

    thoughts?

    Maybe you're just so emotionally overwhelmed.... :p

    Actually, the aluminium Macbooks should be cooler than the previous ones.

    The macbook is pretty sexy, it could be making you nervous to be touching it ;) LOL sorry, had to.

    I've not noticed this phenomenon with aluminum MBPs over the years, but those new macs may be overstimulating you. Are you drooling more as well? ;)

    give the guy a real answer fellas.

    i dont think that with 4% CPU usage your mac would be getting very hot. That said, the aluminum transmits heat better than any plastic, so heat from the hotter parts inside would spread farther than with a plastic computer.
