When I first got this machine (current gen 13" MBP, 2.53), the idle temp was somewhere between 45-50C.

Today it sits at 62-64C.

Doing anything CPU intensive skyrockets it to 88-92C.

That's interesting. I had a feeling mine was running hotter than normal, this just confirms it.

What to do now...

Hey, no need to be sorry. Here you go:

I seem to be about the average... 45 degrees with about 98% idle cpu.

Just installed that.... I wonder if this can be attributed to my performance issues at all.
Perhaps I'll do the OS re-installation sooner rather than later, see if that fixes it.

would having more free space make any difference?

Seems to me you just nailed it. Looks like his resident HD is 99% full.

Would that really cause the CPU to run hot? :confused:
I'll transfer my movies over to the other hard drive... see if that makes any difference.

Regarding the performance issues, the HDD has only become this full in the last couple weeks. I've been having speed issues for months.
