    I thought this would be a great time to ask since I just purchased my first Mac and am totally just dead in love with it now. (PC user all my life and I can't believe I ever thought Mac was less than worthy)

    I have the MacBook Pro 15", 2.8 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4 GB RAM, 320 GB HD @ 7200RPM.

    As of doing nothing but browse for the last hour or so. My temp is 145F - 147F.

    When I play World of Warcraft though, my temps can reach anywhere between 180F - 195F.

    So my question is, are these normal temps? Also, could I ask everyone else to list what kind of MacBook Pro they have and submit their idle and load temps here, too? This thread might help some mac newbie like myself in the future.

    Here are my temps.
    I usually watch Celsius, but here it is in F, since that is what you've posted.
    I have iTunes, Firefox, Transmission opened. iTunes paused, watching YouTube videos... nothing too demanding really.
