I have an early 2011 MBP with the 2.2 GHz Core i7 processor. Lately I have been noticing the computer is getting really hot and the fans are spinning very hard under what I believe is fairly minimal use. The computer was not this loud or hot during the past 3 years. Right now I have Safari with 3 tabs, Microsoft Word, and Finder open. My fans are hitting 6000RPM, HD temp is 95F, CPU is 162F, and and GPU is 140F. What bothers me is that the fans hit 6000RPM and the computer almost unbearably hot out of nowhere. I understand that the computer gets hotter when I am playing YouTube videos or streaming Hulu, but when the MBP kicks into high gear with a few PDFs and journal articles and Word, I suspect something is wrong. There doesn't seem to be anything suspicious going on when I look at Activity Monitor or iStat Nano. Is this normal behavior or should I have it inspected at the Genius Bar?
