    may have a temp problem
    Lately I notice that my macbook gets up to 74 degrees celsius when I am doing things like just surfing the internet on safari with two windows open. The fan goes up to 6,200rpms. I have no other apps open, in fact it is doing it right now. I really don't think it should be doing it for light use like this. I am even afraid to open FCP now.

    That is normal. If there was a problem, the machine would power off on its own before any damage was done.

    It's a known problem. There's very little you can do about it without voiding your warranty.

    there are several things available to tell the speed of you fan and temp for widgets i like iStat pro as it gives me alot of information as to what is going on.

    i also run smc Fan Control which is an app that will show you temp, fan speed and let you adjust the speed of your fan.

    adjust to an extent you can't go lower than what the computer is making it go itself
