    I notice when I do anything processor intensive (handbrake) that my 2.13ghz 4GB ram air gets hot so I downloaded iStat to check it. Right now my CPU A temp is at 97 C.....is this too hot, if so what should I do?

    It's not. There's nothing more taxing than Handbrake for a CPU.

    Too hot for your lap maybe, but not too hot to kill your computer. It has safeguards to keep temps within proper limits.
