Windows 7: Is it just me or is this warm

Is it just me or is this warm

It seems like my hard drives running a tad bit hot



Is this normal for a laptop? Should I buy one of those fancy USB laptop coolers that lie on your lap?

Yeah that HDD temp is gettin up there, I think its definitely time to buy a cooler

EDIT: I installed that program just now to see my temps and I think it might not be accurate because my CPU temps are a hell of a lot lower than when I had XP on my PC (or Windows 7 runs cooler... yay windows 7!) They used to always be 40's to 50's and now they are like this:

A top tip for a laptop is not to put it on your lap. On many there are ventilation slots on the bottom of the laptop that get covered if put on your legs when sitting down.
Use it on a table or what I do with my laptop is to use a tray on my lap and put it on that.
The cooler will be a good idea as they are quite cheap.
