    Hey guys,

    Ever since I got my MBP on launch date it's been running hot. I tried to take it to Apple a couple times but they all said it's not a big deal. However, it got worse (86-98 degrees C) recently so I finally took it back one more time and they found that the sensor on the battery failed.

    They are planning on replacing the battery but I've been worried that with the problem happening over the last 3 months, is there any lasting consequences from this? Would the CPU performance / life be cut short? I don't want to have my $3000 laptop fail on me. I use it for work and it's basically my life line.

    This is the diagnostic info:

    Cooling Diagnostic shows that battery thermal sensor 0 (zero) is failing

    The CPU has its own integrated temperature sensors, so no need to worry about that... The CPU is specified to function normally up to about 110C. :)
