This is supposed to be normal but I too am uncomfortable with that.
Laptops are designed to operate at higher temperatures. My previous
thinkpad R40e would run at around 72C at full load. My new iBook G4
(1.2 GHz) runs at 58-60C at full load but that is because it has a
very powerful fan. I have found that hard-disk heating is more of a
problem since it causes lot of discomfort to your palm while working.
