    Hi...using for web, email, the MBP stays very very cool. However, tonight used iphoto for a while, just viewing and reordering photos....MBP got VERY HOT...bottom and just above top of keyboard..like above function keys and below hinge....really hot like it could burn your skin...is this normal..I know they get hot but I have never experienced this yet.

    Get iStat Pro Widget and tell us what your temp reads, My MBP doesn't get that hot at all using iPhoto even though I haven't used it extensively.

    How long were you using it for and was the processor maxed out? Do you know the temperature?
