    I did some digging on mRoogle and found some old post about mac's running "too cold." From what I read is that it's near impossible to run your computer too cold. Can anyone back that up? My computer is either off or sleeping throughout the day while I'm in class with my air conditioning unit on and a small fan running as well. Could it be the aluminum case just puts off more coolness than the plastic would?

    Also, are these temperatures okay for my machine? I'm running iStat nano and here are the temps:

    Hard Drive: 27
    CPU A: 37
    GPU: 35
    GPU Heat sink: 33
    Enclosure bottom: 25
    Memory Controller: 38
    Northbridge: 38

    Think about it. People in Alaska have MBPs and they don't have issues.

    They are fine if you live in a cold place or have the AC cranked up to coldest setting ever.

    However, the best temperature check is, if you don't feel the bottom part warm, then that means the readings are right.
