Hello, recently my two month old X201s started to get rather hot (50-65 Celsius) (122-149 Fahrenheit) when I am using minimal system resources and putting little of the CPU to use. So I purchased a cooling pad, which only occasionally works to keep the temperature down.
I could understand this happening if I were running something resource intensive such as a game as I am quite sure this should not be happening whilst running a word processor.
and before you suggest looking for blockages to the vents and exhaust I already have and they are all unobstructed.
the temperatures were checked using the program speed fan
I would appreciate some insight into this matter

since you got warranty remaining just send it in for repair, there is probably a need for some new thermal paste or that the heatsink heat pipe is leaking.
