So I went to one of those office superstore type places and gravitated toward the laptop accessories dept. where the VERY small selection of cooling stand/platforms was displayed. They were relatively cheap so I said what the heck, let's try one. I don't care about USB fans or anything like that. My two concerns are as follows: 1) Get the machine off of flat surfaces in order to facilitate airflow underneath. 2) Get the machine off my lap! I spend alot of time with the machine on my lap and the heat gets downright uncomfortable very quickly. The relatively cheap platform that I bought is good ergonomically but doesn't seem to help cool the machine any better. Being somewhat of a tinkerer and fabricator, I started thinking about how I could improve upon this idea and what I came up with in my mind's eye looked exactly like this: Darn it!! All the good ideas always seem to be taken Anyway, this thing looks awesome! Anybody using one?
