    So I am using my new 13 inch MBP. I only have a few pages on safari open, mail, skype and word. The CPU fan suddenly goes off, I checked the CPU temperature and it is 89 degrees.

    Is this normal?

    Flash does increase CPU usage. BUT I tested with my 2010 mbp with flash 10.2 watching 720P youtube videos using Flash for 10 minutes yesterday, my CPU temperature rose from 40'C idle to about 60'C afterwards, it had never reached any point close to 70'C. Therefore I'm not sure if it is the problem of 13" or the new model.

    (Room temperature was about 23'C. I live in Hong Kong)
