    As near as I can figure, your temps are just fine. They're about the same as mine (+/- a few degrees), and since mine are within the range of temps that have been posted all over these forums, then I'm thinking that we're within the average.

    Quite normal. MBPs tend to run fairly hot. Nothing to worry about.

    Yes, they're quite normal for MBPs. The temps are Fahrenheit.

    I would freak out if mine got that hot if it's Celsius that is hehe. In fact i have hehe..

    I run SMcFan all the time on full.. and i dont get about 60c. Usually running about 45c.

    I know most people say it's not bad for it to get to high but honestly it is. You'll get HD failures easier when your CPU is transferring that much heat to the HD.

    HD will usually start to fail at 60c. Although laptop HD's are little beter.. But who wants to risk it.

    The heat from my MBP is nothing compared to the smaller Sony Vaio laptops my brother and father have. Those things will burn through your lap and palm. My dad's palm rest was so hot I couldn't believe it, the fan was blowing full steam as well(really really loud).

    This MacBook Pro feels much better than my first one (Rev A). They seem to have gotten cooler over the generations.. :)
