    just curious to know here..

    what is the typical operating temperature of your MBPs?

    my 1.83GHz 15.4" feels VERY hot to the touch after a while, so i did some research and downloaded this program

    smcFanControl

    my fan speed is set to 2000 rpm, and average operating temperature hovers ard 60 degrees.

    what abt you guys?

    In general, most Apple stuff gets hot easily. Period.

    Hi,

    Sometimes, after using the laptop iBook G4 for 30mins to an hour, the bottom left corner gets hot.

    didn't hear the blowing fan kicking in for a long while.

    tried tuning down the CPU speed to slowest. it's still hot but not as hot as when the CPU speed is highest.

    Resting my palm on it still uncomfortable. still hot!!!

    anything wrong with this laptop? need to bring back agent for servicing?

    The early MacBook and MacBook Pro with the Core Duo processors got hotter than the later Core 2 Duo versions.

    Right now, my PowerBook is showing 56 degrees at the CPU bottom and 33 at the battery but gets to about a maximum of 64 degrees when playing games and using software that requires the AltiVec unit.

    If you haven't used iStat Menus, you might want to see them for yourselves.

    My white Macbook works great as a lap warmer in freezing aircon room. I don't dare to use it outdoors. LOL!

    My MacBook Pro gets heated up easily too, even after SMC fan control. but nevertheless, you can try lifting the laptop away from tabletop, raise it, or buy a cooling ball at computer accessories shops.

    It's amazing to come back and find this thread still alive after nearly 5 years.

    I finally retired my 17" Powerbook after almost 5 years and am now on the current 15" MB Pro.

    yo, i've just got the older version 15" macbook pro and i'm still in the process of learning to operate it.
    i noticed that the heat generated cannot be compared to other makers. one thing i noticed is that there's no exhaust port, unlike others where hot air is blowing out. it's different for mac, i do not understand how is the heat dissipated or exhausted but it's not as hot as my previous acer notebook.

    There aren't air vents on the underside below the palm rest? Also, the fans should be located near the display to exhaust hot air there.

    check and checked again. no vents, no ports whatsoever(except for the connector ports at the side). apple designs are so seamless and slick. bow down to them. so where is the heat exhausted?

    My iMac works great. I nearly always put it to sleep after using. But occasionally, it doesn't wake up from its sleep. I have to power it off and on again. Anyone has this problem?
