    Am a convert from PC and am enjoying my 15" MacBook Pro about 3 months old. Am not concerned about the heat though it would be nice to monitor temperature. Several Widgets show Pros/Cons and not sure which one to download.
    Am planning to purchase lapcool4 anyways. Any suggestions on Widgets that will monitor temp, how about Istat on Apple site. Didn't see any reviews on this yet??

    iStat pro is a very nice widget. It will monitor alot more than just temp too.

    Fan Temp

    You are correct. It also indicates memory and CPU usage.

    I think I will download it tonite.

    I also use iStat mentioned above. For a quick look at temp and fan speed I use smcFanControl. It displays the CPU temp at the top of your screen and also fan speed which you can control.
