My PowerBook is running with a CPU temperature of 44.7 degrees Celsius right now, using Entourage, Firefox, Excel, iTunes, iCal, Shakespeer, HP device manager, and Preview.

My 2.33 runs around 53-54c most of the time. Have never actually stopped to check temp during a long gaming session. MacWorld did a write up showing peak temps on the MBP's at about 80c on both the 2.16 and the 2.33. The hottest I've seen mine is about 70c, but like I say, I don't keep tabs on this kind of stuff any longer unless there seems to be an issue that could be related to heat or I've just built a new desktop/gaming rig. And then usually only keep track while in active process of overclocking and testing.

Yes, I agree.

The only time monitoring temperature is important is when overclocking. I've never seen a stock system overheat on its vanilla settings. I'm sure it happened at some time, but I've never seen or heard of it.
