I was playing WoW in Windows 7 in boot camp and the laptop felt hot to the touch to the point that if i were to leave my finger there it would start to burn. The hottest part of the laptop was the top left corner. Thinking it was overheating, I downloaded a GPU & CPU monitoring program. The CPU and GPU were both sitting around 70 deg celcius (sic) and i could hear the fan blowing at max speed. Is this normal operation temps for the new model of macbook pros? The system I am using is the 15-inch Macbook Pro, the model that just came out. Thanks for the help!

quote: You don't want to be regularly running your CPU up against the thermal throttle level. That value is set to keep it from quickly burning up. Electromigration occurs more rapidly at higher temperatures, and if you're regularly baking your chip at high temperature levels you'll cut years off it's life expectancy.
