    does everyone else get the same thing?

    I watch flash movies online alot. Use to do it with firefox, but cpu would hit 70%+. Now with 10.2 and safari, cpu is about 30% usage, but the fan still kickin in.

    it's sooooo annoying!!!! thinking about goin 2011 mbp solely because of this.

    Hm, using Safari + Flash 10.2 on 11" ultimate. I don't have any of these problems.. CPU usage is way below 30%, while watching flash videos, and the fan is not hearable at all!

    Well the CPU is not the only thing that generates heat, the GPU does as well and the fan needs to cool both of them down.

    That said, I can watch HD youtube vids all day on my 13" and it bearly makes any noise at all. I do also have coolbook installed.
