    Hi, I have downloaded an app called iStats menus and a widget called iSTAT NANO.

    Both show data, CPU, fan, temps etc.

    The main reason why i downloaded these was to monitor the fan and temp as i use my macbook on my lap more than on a hard surface so i didn't want it to get too hot.

    Before today i didn't even know macbooks had heat sensors in them. My question is how reliable and accurate are these heat sensors and these apps that I have.

    Thank you. :)
