Intel® Core™ i3-330M Processor (3M Cache 2 13 GHz)

I have a new Toshiba laptop running WIN7 4GB RAM and wanted to know what is the "normal" operating temperature for my i3-330M processor. My System Monitor software reports about
65 degrees Celsius. This seems a little high since my old laptop with a Celeron processor used to run about 55 degrees C.
Thanks for any info/comments.

In the past couple months, I have seen three threads like this. Either there is a flaw in the design of your model of notebook and you should ask your OEM manufacturer about it (obviously you are still under warranty) or this is the normal operating temperature. I am assuming this is on idle, in which case it is rather warm, even for a notebook processor (they are designed to run much hotter). What are your load temperatures?

Thanks everyone. I did check with Intel on another forum and the red-line temp for my I3 processor is 90 C I am well within it's limits.

Best Regards,
