    Hi-
    Is it bad for macbook pro to be constantly running near 60 degrees.

    I just connected an external monitor and the mbp is running at 60 degrees...I have it plugged constantly. Before when I didn't have the external the temperature rarely got above 45. Will this seriously diminish the longevity of my mbp? Thanks.

    Alex

    60° Fahrenheit: No.

    60° Celsius: No.

    60 Kelvin: Oh, we wish.

    You didn't state which model you have but my older 2.5 17in MBP is almost always connected to my 50 in plasma and the temps typically hover between 60-65 degrees Celsius. Always seemed normal to me.

    I have smcFanControl installed and keep the fans spinning at around 3200 RPM. It keeps the MBP at around 40-50C, which actually allows it to be used in my lap.
