    I'm at 48ºC right now.
    Your temp is well within the normal range.

    Is it really normal? 56 degree Celsius is 132.8 degree in Fahrenheit
    My MBP 13" 2.4GHz (April 2010 Model) never went over 76 Fahrenheit, which is 24.5 degree Celsius. And I usually use computer 5-6 hours straight running Photoshop, Transmission, and etc.

    Where the fresh snow don't go.
    Lots of people says that MBPs are known to be hot when in use.

    yes it's normal. 24.5C even under use? that's abnormal. even on idle, my machine will sit around 40C. the only time it's anywhere below 30C is if the machine has been shut down for awhile and just turned on.

    Are you sure it wasn't reading 76 Celcius? 24.5 C IMHO while the CPU is operating is impossible. Unless you were using it outdoors at -20 C or something. My 13" Dec 2009 is at 45 C now and it's idle.

    Have to ask, also, what is your battery time?

    Sorry to be ignorant, but how do I find this out?

    Also, I am only getting a few hours out of my battery?

    New MBP, 15", 2.66, 256 SSD, Hi Res screen. What is everyone else seeing?


    I just

    Wow. 76F? You do realize thats pretty much ambient right? That would mean the computer was producing absolutely no heat. Impossible.

    My idle ranges from 40C to 55C depending on my ambient.

    Can you show me pictures?

    What's the ambient temperature where you are?

    I'm going tomorow to apple to request a new macbook pro!

    How long does your battery lives with a full charge?

    Mine says 4 hours and 20 min...

    It's less than half they say it would handle...

    My bad, you are absolutely right.
    I checked my iStat setting again, and was Celcius. :p

    I have the same comp (2010 13") and idles around 45 C. I notice that while playing games though, it hangs around 85 C! Is this normal? This seems really, really hot to me.

    If it is normal, how can CPU operate at near-boiling temperatures (100 C) and not suffer any damage?

    CPU's can reach upwards of 120C without sustaining any damage, stop worrying and use your machine, it'll shut itself off if it ever reaches such a temp.

    Because it doesn't boil at 100C?

    The past couple of days my mbp has been getting rather warm, so i have done a little research, and my temps seem to be a little higher than normal.
    Its been idling all morning, random surfing here and there, but sitting for an hour. Its at 70c right now. Doesnt that seem just a little high for sitting and doing nothing?

    I have had the same problem. my macbook just went to 80 celsius when almost idle. (just running itunes w/ music) and then ofcours my fan runs wild. so I searched for way to limit the fans rpm a little (I even made an app for easier setting) but then after 2 months it just didn't heat up that much anymore. Realy strange...

    good times.

    Why doesn't your oven melt when it reaches 100C? See what's wrong there?
