I am using an IBM R51, Pent. M 1.5 ghz , on-board Intel Extreme 2 graphics
It is not usually running in an air-conditioned room, ambient air temp is circa 30* C, but the machine always has an external fan blowing onto it (and me!)
The usual temperature from cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THM0/temperature is between 42 and 52*C, normally at 49* under web browsing and word processing.
If I fire up Celestia or any other graphics intensive app the cpu temp goes up to 63*C.
The internal fans seem to be working because there is a definitely hot air being coming out of the vents on the central left side of the machine.
The machine's manual is not much help
Operating with no diskette: 5* to 35*C (41* to 95*F)
Should I be worried, or are my temps within the specs for P4-M and this laptop?
Thank you for any input,
