    how does the laptop not fall off the stand when its being used in "desktop mode" I want to get one of these and the majority of the reason is to keep my MBP cool so it will be sitting on a desk most of the time.

    Does anyone have one of these things?

    I've had one for almost a year now.

    It works very well. Makes typing more comfortable on a desk or in your lap, and also keeps the screen up higher so it's easier on your neck. :)

    It doesn't fall off in "desktop mode" because of the little grippy feet on the bottom of your 'book. Just make sure they don't get dirty or it will slide a little over time.

    I've used it everyday for the past year or so and I would recommend it to anyone.

    between these 3:

    Griffin Elevator: http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/elevator/


    iLap:http://www.raindesigninc.com/ilap.html


    Targus:

    what will work best? What i actually want to do it have the notebook kind of hidden away maybe off the side of my desk, or below while its just being used connected to a monitor. but i want to help it run a little cooler. I was really considering the iLap because of the aluminum heat sink but the fact the its the "iLap" and im not really going to be using it on my lap.. yea.. :rolleyes:

    I like the iLap for upward tilt and the wrist pad, but I'm likely to be going for a MB rather than a MBP though, so I'm not sure I'll be as driven to this accessory as a MBP owner.

    Have you looked at the Xpad? It's what I was considering if I'd decided to go with a MBP, and it's another non-powered option. The Griffin and the Targus both look even more unstable to me. :eek:

    well would the iLap heat sink work better or the Targus raised laptop stand with 4 corner points and airflow work better to keep my MBP cool?
