That's normal, buddy. Don't worry about that. :) 
Laptops are designed to stand with heat more than desktop. For comparison, my old (2,5 years) Toshiba M200 running: CPU=60'C and HDD=50'C. That's with 30'C ambient temperature, I ever reached 70'C (CPU) and 60'C (HDD) when it's get hot in my room (35'C+)...

Thats not bad really, as long as your fans are kicking in when needed, you can also check temps with HWmonitor.
