    My fans are lightly running and iStat shows every thing over 100 degrees fahrenheit. CPU is at 157

    100 Celsius would be bad, but you're fine. It's a computer; it heats up.

    Don't worry you are fine. Which MBP do you have?

    There really should be a sticky for this question. Every day it seems.

    Under normal conditions, (web browsing, emailing, etc), the CPU temperature is usually less than 50C for me. Under high load, it may jump to 80C. But the fans don't shoot up. The aluminum case is pretty good at keeping the MBP cool.

    US currency! then this why your Mac is not working well. Only the ones paid by British currency work well :) Just kidding ;)

    I agree with Vanc. It really depends on the load. I also think the duration the computer is active can be a factor.

    if you like you can install smcfancontrol and speed up the fans and that way your laptop is going to be cooler. I speed up my fan in my mbp 13'' to 3000rpm and is running at 120 F under normal usage. check this thread http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=759799
