Laptop running hot

As far as I'm aware that's pretty hot, especially considering I'm not doing much with it (web, music).
I have an HP HDX 16 series laptop. It's brilliantly designed so that the vents are on the bottom. I've compensated for this by propping it up so that the vents are about one inch off the surface of my desk, so there is some air circulation going on.

Anyway, is this temperature something to worry about, and if so, how should I remedy it?

    those are too bad actually. a little warm but not bad.

    for comparison, my CPU is running at 40-50 C in all 4 cores and my GPU is at 70.

    I wouldn't worry about it too much.

    Most mobile C2Ds are rated up to 100C so you should be fine. They'd throttle down if they were getting too hot before that happens.
