    I just purchased a macbook and noticed it runs a little hot. Around 132F/56C when only using Safari. My first question would be; Is this normal?

    I came across this site which claims to have a script to up the RPM's on the fans. Anyone have any experience with it?

    The program is called smcFanControl. Not necessarily scripts, but a app that runs in the background. You can find the program on
    I believe there are a lot of forum posts about this program...should have searched the forums. Hah! :)

    Sounds like a reasonable temp. Use smcFanControl if you feel otherwise.

    Sounds just a BIT hot for just surfing the net. I'm around 49/50C when just using Safari, although Mac Rumors tends to get my fans running faster even when the MBP is not getting hot. Odd...
