Yes that is a bit hot for a laptop. Most i've seen mo matter if its a wintel or a mac they top at 120 to 135. Did you add a faster 5400rpm drive or something? If heat is around the CPU then the CPU's heatsink will heat up causing less colling for the CPU.
Its not out of the question for a laptop to run so hot. If it is stock, its no big deal. Its when you start adding and oc'ing that it becomes an issue. Maybe start a new thread with questions as to hot hot everyones laptop is running. My dual G5 has been running hard all day and its at 136 F. That is HOT in my book. I could deal with it not being so quiet if it ran cooler.
Well, My new iMac g5 2Ghz is not a laptop, but its running about 144 F and seems very happy at that!:)
