Since I swapped for a non-defective one, I've never seen the temps get over 70 farenheit. They usually hover around 50 idle and 60 load, which is icy to the touch. My macbook runs constantly for 12 hours a day, so I'm not a light user. I'd take it to the apple store if I were you and they might just give you a new one (thats what I did)
Edit - and yes, I do mean F(arenhiet), not C(elcius)
I use coreduotemp to measure the temps.
