    Specs:
    Macbookpro 13, 2.26, 2GB, 160GB
    What is the normal temp for Macbook pro 13?
    Hi, I have a strange feeling that my macbook pro is getting hot (than normal) during recharging.

    After 14 cycles, the battery status is "normal". I fear, it used to be "excellent" or "good" please help me...

    This is the temp reading,
    CPU A Temperature Diode 69C
    CPU Core 1 64C
    CPU Core 2 65C
    Enclosure Bottomside 36C
    Enclosure Bottomside Position 2 36C
    Enclosure Bottomside Position 3 34C
    Enclosure Bottomside Position 4 39C
    Main Heatsink 2 61C
    Main Heatsink F 60
    Northbridge Position 1 54C
    SMART Disk FUJITSU MJA2160BH FFS G1 37.0C
    Smart Battery bq20z451 (21428) 36.0C

    Is this normal temperature?

    pls help!

    It depends on what you happen to be doing. If you're running CPU intensive processes, it's going to go up. And conversely, when you're using it for light duty (web browsing, email, etc), it's going to go down. So normal is relative to the way you use your machine.

    70 degrees Celsius is within normal range.

    Quite honestly, I think these monitoring programs make people paranoid. They're really not necessary and only became popular when the overclocking gamer fad started getting big. But quite honestly, on a laptop the tolerances are very tight and you shouldn't be overclocking anyway. Just leave it alone and it will be fine. If it's not, it will shut down at random and then you know it's time to worry.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
