    I finally got round to setting up time machine, and it has been trundling away for a little while now. The only issue is that during the backup the temps were pushing 75C!?! I was just browsing while the operation was ongoing, any reason for this? the rest of the time it is just under 50C.

    Any links to current laptop cooling stands reviews/comparisons?:)

    As car salesmen say, "they all do that, sir".

    During that first backup Time Machine is indexing and doing a bunch of CPU intensive work, so it warms things up a bit. It won't hurt anything so no need for a cooling stand. Subsequent backups will be less demanding and ordinarily are barely noticeable.

    While thats nice to know the hottest temps were from the GPU Diode? I had hoped it would be something like that, just seemed odd for what appeared to be a file transfer.

    Thanks.
