That is anything else but normal. Silicium melts at ~120C and the sensor  
in the cpu shows always lower values than the real temperature. Your story  
reminds me of my old Gericom notebook which had a Desktop Celeron at  
1700mhz. Boy that was a piece of crap! It switched  off at 82C.
Does the fan of your thinkpad work? Does something block the ariway of the  
fan grill?
