I am scared, my G4 feels very hot. i don't want to break this beautiful machine?

I am blowing a fan on it as we speak?

Is this me or does the TIBOOK have heat issues?

Download temperature monitor and let us know how hot. Mine gets very hot if it's on my lap or the arm of the chair, make sure you have good ventilation underneath.

Temperature Monitor 4.7 software download - Mac OS X - VersionTracker

Maybe there's just a dust pile-up in the fan...
Ever opened up an iBook?

By the way, at this point you should consider placing it on a table or a book of some sort.

I frequently blow out the insides.
Yes, I work on a tabletop usually.
Sometimes I work on a train where I use a newspaper as a buffer.

My hard drive temperature is presently 115 Degrees.

Apple - Support - PowerBook - Care and Handling
Quote:
The bottom of the PowerBook case functions as a cooling surface that transfers heat from inside the computer to the cooler air outside.

Apple Portables: Operating temperature
Quote:
The bottom surface and some areas between the keyboard and LCD hinge of your Apple portable computer can become very warm after extended periods of use.

This is normal operating behavior.
Contrary to popular belief and use, they are not 'laptops'.
Apple (and other computer manufacturers) advise that portable computers shouldn't be used on your lap and definitely not on bare skinned legs.
