    Hi Guys
    My "new" 2014 MBP i7 16GB ram, gets quite warm after a lot of surfing, flyfishing forums should be OK but one of my Photographic forums is image heavy?

    I have pulled the battery down to 74% so most probably been on for maybe a couple of hours

    I could understand it being warm after a lot of Photoshop work but not surfing?

    Is this normal?

    EDIT: Have just closed the lid, not closed down, so is the MBP still churning while its sleeping
    (on wifi )?

    Launch the "Activity Monitor" app in the Utilities folder and check the CPU tab. ;)

    That looks pretty normal to me. Was was it warm at the time?

    No actually, we have cool weather at the moment?
    Usually use the iMac but have been giving this refurb MBP a good run, learning the new device
    will keep a good eye on the activity monitor tonight and if it gets hot again after an hours use,
    will post the results here

    Perhaps this was the refurb problem? And it may be intermittent?
    Perhaps I have allocated too much memory to photoshop in photoshop preferences? Not sure if that would make a difference though?
