    Is anybody's MBP running a little warmer after installing Lion??? Its temperature sometimes goes up to +70F when Im just using iTunes and Safari. And the Fans are constantly running between 2400rpm - 2600rpm.

    When idle, this is what it looks like.

    I've heard this with mbp's and air's. It isn't too bad an issue, but try to keep the vent and air inlets clear....Like not using it on a bed without a tray of some kind.

    I checked my iMac after the upgrade to Lion, but no temp. Issues there

    Lion makes it run slightly warmer. i would estimate maybe 5-8 degrees C. Not a big deal, but annoying. I have a SSD also.
