Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 Running at 55-60C under low-medium load

Hello.

I've got this Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Si 3655 Laptop, with the processor stated in the title, it's pretty old. Lately it started shutting itself down while under a load (playng Terraria.. Not that big of a load really). So I downloaded a tool and it's telling me I'm running at a steady 60C while under normal everyday use (browser open with a few tabs open, steam, skype). I don't belive this is normal since my desktop is running at around 40C while gaming. I give a guess that it runs at 50C idle.

Last time it was opened for cleaning was maybe an year ago. I don't know what it's normal temps are because I've never tested the heat before.

Is this way too high for a laptop?

AMD Turion X2 Dual-Core RM-75 VS Intel Core 2 Duo T6600
Since I couldn't get specs on the AMD Turion in terms of cache, etc. (the Intel one in the title is 2M Cache, 2.20 GHz, 800 MHz FSB) I couldn't figure out which is the better processor. Does anyone know? Is there also a website I can reference that can compare them?
