I've got a Dell Latitude C640, with FreeBSD 5.4 stable.
It works well, except for this:
After a cuple of hours up and running it gets really hot. My fingers 
almost gets burned when I touch the harddirve, memory etc!
According to `sysctl hw.acpi.thermal.tz0.temperature` the 
cpu-temperature is usually about 50-60 degrees C.
Which I consider i normal, but is it normal for the rest of the devices 
to be so hot?

Is there someone else who has the same problem which I do with a simular
