    Have any of you guys used this before? Have you noticed any overheating or wifi issues when you use cpu intensive programs? I plan to use this with the Belkin Thunderbolt express dock when that comes out. How do you guys feel about your purchase? Thanks.

    Adding a picture or a link would have been better, had to google what it was.

    I think that it is actually better for cooling, you know, heat rises.

    But, I would be terrified for scratches with this, and I think it's a bit fiddly with cables, it does look nice though when it is set up.

    Sorry. I meant to link the website. I guess I forgot. It has three rubber inserts for different sizes thats the only way I could see it preventing scratches.

    Ah, Ok, it's rubber, I thought it's plastic.

    I use my computer on a cooling stand. It slides nicely under my Cinema display and will operate on the stand open or closed.

    That said, it's a classy design, and I've never noticed any issues working in clamshell-closed mode, heat or otherwise.

    I use it primarily for some light gaming (Spore!) so I can have the laptop in clamshell mode and use my external monitor. It provides good ventilation - you can choose which orientation to have the Macbook in to give the fans room to breathe.
