What else would you expect? I find amusing to see people hoping for a Mac portable with Pentium-M-based processor running really cool. The P-M processor is not cool at all when working full throttle. Remember this processor is roughly the 32bit-equivalent of the G5 in terms of processing power. You have now two of them in a laptop... Be thankful that you can at all use such a computer and without serious heat problems, to put things into perspective.

Anyone looking for a really low power (and accordingly lower performance) Mac portable, should consider older G4 models.

To make things worse, the MBP is not cool at idle.

Macworld has a video up that shows just how easy it is to replace the hard drive and memory in the new macbook. Additionally, you can get a close-up look at the black case.
