I did a search, and 90% of the threads about this are as old as 2009. It's time for a recap. So, how are you attempting to cool down your laptop? - Let's hear from people who are sitting with it on their lap. - Let's hear from those who have it mounted on their desk. - What do you do if you're taking it on public transportation (like I will be doing)? I was looking at some of the items on Apples own store, but the idea of another plate beneath the mbp doesn't sound useful to me. Then I came across some of the feet that you can buy. They elevate the laptop giving it more space to get rid of the hot air. Very useful for working on a desktop, but this seems a bit off when dealing with lap work. At the moment I'm looking at this: ChillDesk MiniXL. But again there's the part with the feet. Although they do use graphics showing that it works will on the lap. I need more tips here, and I guess a lot of you out there do as well. Edit: Found a year old review of the chilldesk: Hardware heaven. I think that pretty much persuaded me to go ahead and get this... atleast until someone else comes with some nice ideas 5-7 degress sounds nice.
