    I have a brand new Macbook Pro 13 inc core i5, less than 1 week old. The day i got it I added my own ram (2 x 4GB) and an Intel 320 SSD...

    When running skype video chat + 1 firefox (with 3 tabs).
    FAN- 3000rpm
    TEMP- 80 (C)

    My activity monitor says skype is using 65% on the list, but in the bottom, it says 80% of my CPU idling.

    Any advice/thoughts? Im a computer science major at U of M Ann Arbor, but this is my first Mac and laptop so still getting used to the high temps.
