    I recently sold my mbp because it ran extremely hot w/ windoze and replaced it w/ a mba 11.6 for general computing and plan on getting a new mac pro or used one in the not so distant future for gaming and non-osx programs I need for work.

    So my question how is the temperatures while running windows w/ bootcamp?

    On what machine are you asking?
    MBA will heat up quite a bit.
    Mac Pro stays super cool and quiet.

    The temps are fine. Too many people worry about this (no offense).

    If your computer truly overheats then it will shut itself down to prevent damage to your hardware so you will be fine :)

    Also if you are switching between OS X and Bootcamp often, consider getting BootChamp.

    It is free but if useful you could throw the guy a donation (no affiliation, just happy user).

    Temps are just like they are in OS X.

    But honestly, with a desktop, its not like I have it on my lap to notice.
