Motherboard overheating?

I recently purchased a brand new Acer laptop (Aspire 5377). After installing the speccy temp monitoring program, I was alarmed by the motherboard temp which varied from 60 to 63c. The two other temps were fine (45c for CPU on idle and 36c for HDD). Is it overheating or is it normal? I realize that mobile CPUs can withstand much higher temperatures than desktop CPUs but I'm not sure if this applies to laptop motherboards. My desktop motherboard temp is 19c so the 63c seems very high to me.
