    It's an interesting thought that came to me just now. I have seen it happen on other computer models other than Apple's, where a notebook runs cool and fine for a few months, but as time progresses, it becomes warmer. Maybe it's dust or continuous wear and tear on the hardware.

    I wonder though... does this happen to any notebook you buy?

    Now that it's had some time to get to know you, it's warming up to you! :D

    It's probably just that over time you add more widgets, new apps, background processes, etc., that cause the CPU/GPU to work harder, creating more heat. MBPs tend to run fairly hot, and it's easy to feel with the aluminum skin.

    Definitely. My fans rack up very quickly with temps hitting 60-70c when doing basic tasks using Firefox, Adium, Tweetie and the like. And yes, I've re-installed several times with no difference. I think it's due to the thermal paste drying out therefore giving a higher temperature. :(

    I have the same model as you (bought 1 year ago) and have not seen this problem. I rarely hear the fans in my machine.
