Default Heat/M1 13" MBP

Hi all,

So I am away from home for a while, and using my M1 MBP 13", 16GB and 256GB to edit on the move, PT 2021.12 is the most recent I can use, OS is 12.5, recording to internal drive.

I've noticed quite a bit of heat when running sessions.
The current session I am on has 7 VIs (Kontakt and Korg), 2/3 audio tracks, 4 aux sends, average of 1 plug per channel so nothing crazy) : CPU meter is at 15% ish.

My CPU is at 60 -70 degress C and the fan is on at 1200rpm (data thanks to istatistica)
Obviously bigger sessions, with say 20/30 audio trackes added to the above, and my CPU temp is 80/90 degrees C.

So 2 questions really...

Is this normal?
(I know it's a fairly basic M1 mac now compared to the pros/max/ultra etc)

How are people finding the 14" m1 pro MBP running sessions, does it handle a lot better because of performance cores, therefore little to no heat?
I can feel the heat on the keyboard a little, but especially so on the underside of the machine, at the rear in the middle. Apple 67 watt charger plugged in at all times to save on battery cycles.

I did search the forum here, and learned a lot, but couldn't find anything this specific
