    To go along with being on my 3rd battery in 9 months. My screen is dim on the right side. and my CPU temp when idle is about 120 F and when playing a streaming video from the internet it goes up to 160 F. Is all of this normal?

    160F doesn't seem too hot under full load. My MacBook does that.

    I'm usually at 120 F idle/normal, 150 under load. Pretty normal MBP temps

    Those temps seem pretty normal for Macs.

    They are pretty close to the temps I get on my Mac Mini G4, the ones I remember on my old iMac G5, and pretty similar to what I see on my Mac Pro (even without a load).

    All those systems had more airspace than your portable. So, I'd say if that's what you're seeing, it's probably fine.

    The Macs have a built-in shutdown mechanism. If the computer gets beyond it's safe temps, the machine shuts down by itself as an attempt to prevent further damage.
