Please post your temperature running simple applications like itunes, internet browsing, and perhaps ichat or adium. If you are unsure how to get temperature, you can use - Temperature monitor (http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/19994) - Temperature monitor launcher (http://www.macfanatic.net/blog/2006/05/26/temp-monitor-launcher-v10-released/) - Intel Core Duo temperature Mine is at 61C right now and it remains at that temperature. There's a faint whine associated with that. It's not bad, but it's a high iddle point. Should I just take it in to be seen?
