We will present first results on clusters of galaxies observed with XMM-Newton. In particular we will concentrate on the Coma cluster and Abell 1795. We will give constraints on the dynamical states of the observed clusters provided by XMM-Newton's superb combination of spectral and spatial performances. Furthermore, doing a detailed spectral analysis we will give first results on the temperature profiles of the observed clusters and its implications on mass profiles.
