This site will help collect and show the temperatures of Apple Macintosh computers using the new processors by Intel. All new computers that haven't faced the trail of time will have problems and issues that can make users mad and furious. As with the new MacBook Pro machines where were, and still are, problems with heat dissipation. After scouting forums and help sites for information about what temperatures I can expect on a new MacBook, but that turned out to be harder and more scattered than I first imagined. That's the main motive behind this site and it didn't take too long to setup as I had the base code handy from another site. -

Comments:
Since I have 2 cores, didn't know which to report so used CPU A Temperature Diode sensor, which seems to be rough average of the cores. I did this with and without an iSkin keyboard cover, it raised cpu temp only 1 degree, affected heatsinks and Northbridge sensors more, but only several degrees.
Computer has an aftermarket hard drive, 100 Gig 7200 rpm.
