I downloaded the miniCPUheat Widget and it said it was 140 to 150 degrees. What is the normal temp? I had my iBook flat on the desk, but I got a riser now and so it's cooling off. I was just wondering. BTW, it's the new iBooks.

There is no normal temperature, it all just depends on your workload. Mine I would have to say is at about 50-60 but i really dont do alot of photoshop, and other huge applications.

my ibook is hot!!

I just switched from the last version of the ibook to the new ibook. My old one never seemed to get very hot, and this new one (I bought it yesterday) seems to get really quite warm on the left side. Do you guys experience that too? I'm not doing anything more than some e-mailing and itunes. Please help! If it's not normal, I want to exchange it.

Thanks :)

I have a brand new 12" iBook as well and notice the heat just left of the trackpad. It's not unbearable.. but it's pretty noticeable. I only notice it when I'm plugged into a wall outlet, though. It's usually nice and cool when I'm running off of the battery.
