Should a base 15" quad idle warm?

    Was looking at a 15" 2.0 Quad
    and with it just sitting on the desk doing nothing,
    I noticed the base of the unit was rather warm.

    Is that normal with the new model?

    Install istat pro widget or smcfancontrol to tell exactly what the CPU temp is. And open activity monitor, select "all processes" to see if any processes are acting up. Then report back.
