    Hi, i got a new 23" ACD today, looks awesome.

    only problem, i could fry an egg on it! its boiling hot, especially on the top!
    Is this normal? or should i call apple.

    I have brightness set to 100%, could this be the reason?

    thanks for any advice

    Well, they do get quite hot. What were you doing with it just before it got this hot? Is it in a well ventilated area? :)
