    Hello,

    I've had my White Macbook (13" late 2008) for a while now, and use it all the time. The only problem I find is that it get mentally hot on my lap and the fan is on full speed unless I sort of hover it above my lap which is a little awkward.

    Can anybody recommend any good cooling pads for stands for lap use?

    I've done a little googling and not really found much.

    Any advice would be great.

    Thanks.

    Have you ever dusted your cooling fan? that would solve the problem...

    Never thought of that, is it easy to get at? I guess just unscrew the screws and take the base cover off?

    the iLap looks quite good, but blimy its expensive. ha

    I gave the fan a good blow out so hopefully might make it stay a little cooler. Atm it seems to be quiet from the fan...
