    So today I was watching a long video on youtube, I decided to put it to fullscreen. After about 2 mins, the fans rev'ed up and started becoming really loud, I checked iStat and it said the temps at 67 Celcius! and the fans at 6000 something RpM.

    I'm wondering if this is normal? or if somethings wrong with my MB.

    Yep it's normal. As long as your CUP temp is below 100c you're fine. Try updating your Adobe Flash player and all Apple Updates, this may help.

    Nothing wrong with her, she's just doing what chicks do. Taking her off your lap and sitting her on a table might cool her down some, so she can get some air under her legs.

    Yes, this is what MacBook users have accepted as "normal".

    If i knew this was "normal", i wouldn't have purchased by MacBook.

    I would suggest that you have your MacBook plugged in when watching videos because the fans drain your battery and time after time, it will kill the battery.

    It's not just MacBooks. My iMac G5 CPU fans spin like mad whenever I watch Flash videos, even if the video is paused. It's really quite annoying.

    I don't know if Flash is really that processor-intensive or if Adobe simply hasn't optimized the Mac version of the player/plug-in. But, yeah, it happens, and it is "normal" based on my experience -- "normal" meaning there's nothing wrong, not "normal" meaning it couldn't be better.

    It is the Adobe Flash implementation on OS X. It really is junk.

    By comparison, I am watching YouTube on Linux on an ASUS eeePC, which has a Celeron 900MHz downclocked to 630MHz and a GMA9xx intel GPU.

    Not. A. Murmur.

    Either Adobe or Apple needs a good shoeing for this.

    This is one of the consequences of subpar handling of flash in OS X

    Aye flash is SHOCKING.

    Luckily only uses one core so its not all bad.

    Try and avoid it at all costs tho, and flash ads just piss me off even more!!!

    Need a proper ad blocker, Safari Block is doing ok just not flash based yet :(

    I thought something similar. Maybe some more stupid twelve year olds telling us about how their macbooks are so great because they just are.

    haha Sorry about the slightly deceiving title :p

    Wow Is Adobe doing anything about this, because this is really bad :|?

    Holy CRAP, I thought I was the only one who noticed this. It kills me everytime I see Pre-Pubescent teens whose voices sound like that of dyeing chipmunks talk about their Macbooks, iMacs or MBP's. SO F****** annoying.

    Don't you just love the ones who try to show you their keyboards with their iSights by closing the laptop? I also love how they all "review" their computers without actually showing you their computer. They just talk about them in front of the iSights...

    Well, I certainly don't watch them because I think he's hot... That would be scary. But I do agree that they are good.

    My MacBook CPU hasn't gone above 62 degrees celsius, that I've noticed.

    I have my MB on some little feet (they look good too hehe), mostly for easier typing, but I suppose it helps cooling aswell, and whn watching youube and opening istat it tells me this: 32° C (don't know farenheit) and fan speed 1796 RPM, and super quiet.

    My brother's dell goes nuts on youtube however.
