    What kind of surface are you using it on?

    And what are you doing with it?

    Yikes! Turn it off and let it sit for a while. That is extremely hot. What are you doing with it?

    If it makes you feel better, my Penryn MBP is running at 88*F. :)

    Check SMC and make sure that one of your fans isn't reading 0 RPMs or anything.

    temp control would shut it off before it got to 210... before it got to 110.

    110F isn't all that hot for a computer chip under load. Are you thinking Celsius?

    210F is pretty freaking out though....

    That would explain it. The Core Duo MBPs were notoriously hot. But even then, 210 is NOT good.
