    I just got my MacBook yesterday. I love it! Its my first laptop and its exactly what I need. Since its my first portable, I am curious how hot is too hot for these things. It does get pretty hot, for example when I was importing a bunch of cds i would say it was too hot to hold on my lap. I would imagine it would get hot if I was playing a dvd on it too. I know some people have commented on the heat being a major issue. I've heard of some temperature monitors too, so maybe someone could point me in the right direction and I could tell you exactly how hot it is running. thanks for any help.:)

    I'm waiting to buy my Macbook for a month or two, hoping that the heat issue will be at least marginally fixed.

    In the meantime, I've found a lot of helpful info on here. Start with this thread. There are other links in here as well.
