Hi there, My 17" Santa Rosa MacBook Pro likes to heat up to 95 degrees Celcius before the fan kicks in when I do anything from turning on iTunes Visualizer or ripping a movie with Handbrake. Should such heat be expected when performing these tasks? Even now, the fans started to kick in but the machine is still up near 90 degrees. How do I explain to AppleCare that yes, while the computer still runs, the machine shouldn't be running *this* hot? Here's my situation: I just bought this machine about 5 days ago, still well under the 14 day exchange policy. I love 6-8 hours from the nearest Apple Retail store where I bought the machine, and thus, making the trip back is really an impossibility. Having spent around 3000 USD on this laptop, its hard to swallow such an extreme heat problem. How do I express this sentiment to AppleCare and ask them to replace my machine? Anyway, I'd love to hear your thoughts. I'd run SMCFanControl but I don't think I should have to in order to keep my machine from nuking itself---seems more like a matter of principle that Apple should replace this machine.
