CPU temp?

What could explain the differences between these reported temperatures?

hardy2@hardy2-laptop:~$ acpi -V
     Battery 1: charging, 22%, 02:26:55 until charged
     Thermal 1: ok, 47.0 degrees C
  AC Adapter 1: on-line
hardy2@hardy2-laptop:~$ sudo sensors
Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 0:      +43.0°C  (crit = +100.0°C)

Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 1:      +45.0°C  (crit = +100.0°C)

hardy2@hardy2-laptop:~$ cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THM/temperature
temperature:             46 C

Also, am I to believe that "crit = +100.0°C" means that the CPU can
get up to 100 degrees before damage? This is an Intel CoreDuo
processor, and my experience with Intels is that they break around 80
degrees. Though I've actually gotten an AMD well up over 100 degrees
by accident once, and it still runs fine, but I'm very suspicious that
an Intel would survive that.
