    I have a macbook pro 13" hitting 50C CPU heat by doing nothing, and just by turning on the CAM in paltalk or use little process my fan hits 4000RPM and my CPU temp will reach about 80..
    Installed windows vista 32, im using same Paltalk using camera, playing songs and chatting and my laptop is still cool i cant even hear my fan!!:rolleyes:

    Paltalk express is a beta version. You are not comparing like for like.

    There are lots of programs ported for the Mac that run like crap. Perhaps like Adobe Flash, Paltalk for the Mac clobbers the CPU (more than the Windows version), which generates heat, which causes the fan to come on?

    So do you blame OS X for Adobe doing a crappy port of their app, or Adobe? Or Paltalk, if that's the same situation?

    Is there even an OS X version of Paltalk outside of the Flash based browser Express one? That would explain a lot.
