    Hi, new member but I’ve been lurking for a while.

    As the title suggests I’m looking for a quiet (with emphasis on that) cooling pad for my 2011 MBA as when recording music with a firewire-soundcard and having a lot of programs running the fans go up to max (6500 rpm I believe?). While this does not disturb my amatuer recordings (with the correct settings) this is something that just annoys me. Money, looks or size isn’t an issue as long as it helps make the sound level from the fans from my computer (and the cooling pad itself) goes down.

    So far I’ve looked at this one:

    Thanks for any help!

    I've been using this one with my previous 15" MBP; haven't felt the need for one with my new MBA yet: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B002MU1ZRS/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?qid=1374900437&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX110_SY190

    Come to think of it, it's not particularly quiet. If money is no object, there are probably better ones out there.
