    I wanted to try out vSide, after 15 seconds of play my MacBook's temp shot up to 94C. Quickly quit and uninstalled.

    Whats the hottest (and coldest) your MacBook has ever gotten? (This is for the white MacBook only)

    How much heat can it take?

    Probably just shy of 90° when I was doing some serious VisualHub-ing (may it rest in peace).

    Nah - I can use my black one all day here at work and it sits around the high 40's. It only ramps up to the high 80's when I'm encoding video. Just web surfing and email and stuff and it sits around that high 40's mark all day. Last week when the AC was broken was the first time it averaged over 60 here at work. It was over 40 inside the store so I'm not too surprised.

    Mine's a black one but they're the same machine.

    I was very surprised how much cooler these are compared to the previous versions.

    EDIT: Mine's been running for 9 hours now with safari, mail, netnewswire, ichat and itunes open and it's sitting on 47°.
