    I know macbooks get very hot however, i read that 140F is already pretty hot. I looked mine up and it was running at 170F. Should i take my macbook in or are there anytips to help prevent this.


    P.S. I had safari and word open and that was it.
    It idles at around 110-120F
    New temp max is 192F with the fan at 6208rpm.

    Not hard. i opened up 2 safari browsers, word, itunes, and the dictionary. hit 185. This would be typical to have open when doing homework.

    EDIT: My new temp max is 192F with the fan at 6208 rpm

    See my response in your OTHER thread.

    One thread per topic is preferable :)
