    that sounds normal, my iMac runs around that temp, can remember my Powerbook G4 also running about 140F. don't worry about it.

    That's perfectly fine. On average, my 15" Macbook Pro runs between 40 degrees Celsius to 50 degrees. You really only have to worry about it overheating when it gets into the upper 80s and 90s.

    Yep, pretty normal - the only things that one could worry about being damaged at that tempurature is he hard drive, and it should have its own tempurature readout.

    But yeah - 80ºC-90C is about the point where somebody needs to be worrying; a heatsink would be dislodged or a heatpipe broken. Or the thermal interface wore out.

    To reiterate - your tempuratures are perfectly fine.

    However, the MacBookPro forum would garner a lot more replies then ours, IMO.

    This reminds me of that video of an egg being cooked on a PowerBook. These things are the best winter pals.
