    My 2007 MacBook Pro easily reaches 500 F when using Windows 7 via bootcamp. At least, that what my legs and wrists tell me.

    At its worst running iTunes and Flash video, my Macbook Air 11"inch barely ever gets warmer than lukewarm.

    My old mid-2009 MB Pro, used to get quite hot, but never as hot as the crappy HP/Dell PCs I used use before I turned to the Mac-side.

    Hot enough to turn itself off. That's why I don't use p7zip's bzip2 compressor on this Mac (2006 MBP) anymore, only on my 2009 Unibody.

    55C with some Flash going... albeit on my G4.

    Kinda surprised at some of the other temperatures in here, honestly...

    ^The dual cores and higher strain put on the computers is going to warrant the higher temperatures.

    Mine has gotten to 91 C once... about two weeks ago I was playing a game and had some other things going on in the background and smelled something burning; something on the inside of the Mac had I guess been burnt.

    I ended up turning it off and going to bed... it was a little too late anyway ;)
