Hey everyone,

Just recently decided to try out gaming on my 11" MBA via Windows and was pleasantly surprised at how well it ran Fallout: New Vegas. I was looking to sell this beauty and get a better laptop for gaming but it looks like I won't have to for the time being.

Anyways since I decided to game on my MBA I'm also want to make sure that the extensive heat that gaming tends to bring doesn't negatively affect my machine. So I'm looking for a small, slim notebook cooler than I can carry with me in my backpack. I did a couple of quick searches through Amazon and only seemed to find cooler's for larger laptops. So I've come here looking for suggestions.

What do you use? Is there anything tailored to such a small machine?

Thanks for your time and input, I appreciate it.

I'm looking for a cooler too. Between the Cooler Master (http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Notepal-Notebook-R9-NBC-8PBK-GP/dp/B002NU5V4A/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=I1IKPJ7IHHRRL3&colid=23VQCS87CX87Z) and the Targus Lap Chill Mat (http://www.amazon.com/Targus-Chill-AWE55US-Black-Gray/dp/B002NU5O9C/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=I136BVAHQSNH4D&colid=23VQCS87CX87Z). If I go for the Cooler Master, I would do the 17 inch one, as it has two fans, unless one is enough...

Looking for something to use in bed without the MBA 11 overheating itself or my lap. The Targus looks more appropriate, but the Cooler Master looks more -open- to help air flow. Any recommendations for these two or others for the MBA 11 incher?

To be honest, I think a cooler would be pretty pointless considering it'd just be blowing onto the aluminum and to me it seems that it just won't have any effect.
