    I see people stating the temperatures of their MBPs, fairly often in this forum. How do you do that?

    By the way, I got my new 17" i7 MBP, yesterday, and it runs noticeably cooler than my 2006 core duo 2.16 MBP. Nonetheless, I'm still curious what the processor temperature is, and curious how you measure it.

    Thank you for any help you can provide.

    You can also use iStat, but I think I might have read somewhere that its a tad inaccurate. Close enough for me and I love the fact its a widget. It also displays a lot of other info..
