    Yea so, right this second, its about 75°C according to istat pro. It usually gets this hot when I skype video chat, but right now all Im doing is ichat and safari. 75° is a lot, but is it too hot? It's burning my lap.

    How do you make iStat read the temp of the Airport car?

    Turn off your wireless. It'll cool down then. It gets hot.

    Not that you'll be able to use your wireless then.

    From what I gather, Macs with Nvidia chips are missing that sensor. My mini, friends Whitebook (nvidia) and my other friends Uni MBP are all unable to read temps from the airport, but my Penryn 2.4 can.

    That's weird since my Mac shows the temperature of my Airport card to be 63ºC and it's off.
