    I recently purchased an early 2015 MacBook Pro. The temperatures seem to be unusually high while browsing the web. As of right now the CPU temp is at 80 degrees celsius. Is this something i should be concerned about?
    I appreciate any insight from someone more knowledgeable on this matter. Thanks

    Using Chrome? It chews up battery and makes system run hot.

    This is what slim laptops do after a period of web browsing, especially youtube or any javascript heavy sights. Let some air pass under the laptop.

    What browser do you recommend Protoxx. I always find Safari quite lethargic?

    I switch back and forth with Safari and Firefox. Haven't got around to trying Opera.

    Opera now owned by the Chinese, FYI. Great browser if you trust its ownership.

    it's designed that way, the aluminum case acts as a heat sink.
