    Take a look in Activity Monitor for CPU usage. You're still within normal temperatures. Computers get hot. :confused:

    Feh. I get that all the time running itunes and Alias Sketchbook at the same time, nothing to worry about.
    Start worrying when you hit the 175f-180f and above range on a regular basis, otherwise your temps are good for a compact machine like a notebook or iMac.
