    Hi guys,

    Been using my 17" Macbook Pro for 2 months now. Just started playing starcraft 2 on it. As i'm playing, i notice it gets pretty hot. What can I do to make the laptop cooler? I'm looking into buying a notebook cooler to place under the macbook. Anyone have any good recommendations? thanks in advance.

    The Ivory Tower (I'm not coming down)
    Put some post-it pads under the back corners to elevate it a bit.

    Macbook pro running HOT

    My MacBook Pro is running so hot. Did anyone find a solution? Will it eventually burn up what I'm writing? Thanks.

    do you rly want to know?
    try to elevate it but know that the computer will shut off before any permanent damage actually occurs. Also, i've heard that liquid N2 works pretty well from a cooling standpoint. you can also use SMCfan to try and increase fan speeds so that heat dissipation is a little better.

    Cake cooling rack

    Place the laptop on a cake cooling rack. Sells for a few dollars n kitchen supply stores or hardware stores. Raises the computer about half an inch. Hey it really works.
