    It is pretty high, but it depends on what you're doing. There are two situations where your macbook would get that hot:

    1) you are doing something CPU intensive
    2) you are blocking the ventilation ports somehow

    If you're doing neither of these things, check your CPU usage. If it's more than about 3% when idle, then something is eating your CPU time and raising your temperature. If it's on a cushion, blanket or anything other than a hard surface, try raising it and seeing how it goes.
