    My airport card temperature is 72 degrees. this is with my macbook being mere feet away from my airport express on the same desk. (the computer is at the top level and the airport express is way down by my feet.)

    so my question is it better for the computer to plug the ethernet cable in? or am i okay as is?

    (btw, i'm only doing simple web browsing.)

    The AirPort card does add some work to the system's CPU and will use more power, all of which generate heat.

    You should use the ethernet anyway, if you can. You will get better speeds and a stronger connection.
