    I bought an iLap the same day I purchased my MBP because I had heard people say it gets really warm under load. Yesterday was the first time I had a chance to put a load on the MPB when it was adding all 7000+ of my iTunes songs. The iLap performed as promised it took the heat from the MBP and spread it out over the metal surface all the while I had no idea the thing was even hot until I touched the iLap.

    They are most deff worth the $50 bucks! Highly Highly Recommended.

    i've been contemplating getting one of these for my powerbook. So you'd say it's worth it then?

    I just use the back side of an oven pan; it works just fine. :)

    the ilap is nice but the metal on the ilap gets hot as well, i use the ibreeze that has two fans underneath it, dvforge made it but they went out of business..

    I have one to and love it. But the little stick on rubber feet wore out. They don't stick anymore. I wasn't sure what to do. But Radtech offers similar feet called paws so Im gonna buy them.

    I like the idea of the iBreeze but it looks pretty ugly. What the price difference b/w the iLap and the iBreeze?

    my iLap came with extra rubber feet because they had a warning that said they would wear out. as per the metal the manual says that the metal is designed to dissipate the heat from the laptop thus keeping it cooler.

    I love my iLap and would recommend it to anyone. I use mine almost 24/7.

    Me too, I love my iLap and it feels weird using the BabyBook™ without it.

    My girlfriend bought me one about 6 months ago or so. I use it everyday and I love it. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone thinking about buying one.

    Also, nothing has wore out on mine. And the iLap itself stays very cool, buy perhaps if I had a MBP, things would be different.. :eek:
