    i kno macs r supposed to run hot but i heard 130-140F is normal and mine is running from 180-195F. Should i take it in to get looked at or are there any tips to prevent this?

    Go to you Activity Monitor (Applications-->Utilities), and set the drop down menu at the top to "All Processes." See if there's anything hung up using up a ton of CPU cycles.

    You can also try resetting the SMC.

    If neither of those help, definitely contact/go to an Apple store.
