    It looks like Lion is making my and others run 15 degrees warmer. I was thinking about going back to SL or doing a clean install of Lion, but I am just going to give up. I have Apple care. If my 2011 MBP 13 melts, then they will fix it. It would be nice if Apple acknowledges the problem and institutes a fix. I just keep moving it on my lap to a less heated area!!!

    I wouldn't worry about it. If it causes a problem it should be covered under AppleCare, but I doubt it will cause a problem.

    I haven't seen any temperature increase in fact if anything it's slightly lower.

    Temp increase

    There are multiple reports of temp increase, including mine. Do a Google.

    I feel a marginal increase at the most. Doesn't bother me at the moment^^

    When I installed Lion over Snow Leopard my MacBook Pro ran hotter. A clean install fixed the issue.

    No clean install here, no temperature change either.

    F or C? You should really specify.

    If it's F, who cares; that isn't going to make a noticeable difference.

    If it's C, then you might have a problem.
