Hi, I've owned a reasonably early built 15" MBP for 6 months now, was built in week 10 of 2006 I think. Never had any problems with it, and though it does get warm when in use. The parts that I touch like the keyboard and armrest are fine, the bit above the keyboard gets rediculously hot, though I figure I never touch there anyway). I haven't minded the warmth, can be a benefit on a cold day! Anyway, I installed Temperature Monitor today, interested to see how hot the processor cores get. They idle around 40-50 Celsius, though at the moment I'm encoding a movie into H.264 in iSquint, and there're up at around 82 Celsius (around 175 F for Americans). This seems to be pretty rediculously hot, I'm wondering if this is reasonable for a 15" MBP? The fans run constantly, though very slowly, and I can barely hear them, and almost never spool up unless in Windows. Does anyone with a good knowledge about the innards of MBPs know? Btw, it's a 2.0Ghz the 256Mb video card and the standard 100Gb 5400rpm drive. Thanks in advance.
