    There is all this talk about overheating, melting and exploding computers but nothing about icy cold metallic Macbook Pro's (especially on the palm rests). I can barely start using my computer until it has warmed up a little (something which doesn't take too long on these beasts).

    So for those whose MBP's must endure the cold nights, please post your coldest temps. I used iStat Pro for the monitoring. Just take a screenshot as soon as your computer awakes (from sleep is best), so that it hasn't had time to warm up:D!

    The walk-in freezer is no place you use your computer. ;)

    Mine idles around 49-50 if I'm charging, on WLAN, and chatting with some programs in the backround (Adium, a bunch of safari windows, preview, ical...). I'm pretty happy with my temps, though all SR MBPs seem to run hotter than the last gen ones.

    It looks like those temperatures are when the computer is first urned on, not when it's been running for a while. My MBP is also cold about 29 C when it has been turned off and I've just turned it on, it warms up within 5-10 minutes.

    I had my CPU running Pretty darn cold last week. In my basement it's usually cold, but the sensor was reading a consistent 24 degrees celsius.

    Lowest I've seen my MBP SR 2.4 is 61C, the highest 93C.

    Don't know how to compare it to see if that's too hot.

    Why do you people use Celsius? :D lol

    My MacBook Pro hardly gets below 140F. I live in the south, and we choose not to have Air Conditioning. Occasionally when playing high-graphic games, it'll get up to 170F. I get the ice pack out of the freezer and place it near the top under the keyboard, and within 5 minutes it's down to 120F.

    If I leave it asleep on the ice pack for a while it'll get down to 40F. :rolleyes:

    I think the real question is 'Why do you still use the Imperial System?'
    The Metric system is now the standard in our world, in which only 3 countries have not adopted it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metric_system

    because not everyone in the world lives in America. The USA is the only country which still use the Fahrenheit system.

    Lol, I used to do that too! But that was for my 'baby' 12 inch (see sig). I was afraid of it getting heatstroke!:D Back then, a high end game was Quake 3. Those were the days!

    Mine is around 35C when I first turn it on, I'd expect lower in the winter though, it's pretty hot in my room during the day when I turn it on.
