    Does anybody have any experience with the Thermaltake iXoft, Targus HeatDefense and other similar products? I like using the laptop in my lap and i get almost possesed by the devil when it's starts to heat me. So I'm not that much interested in keeping the notebook cool as in avoiding I get burned by the macbook pro. Any other sugestions?

    You can use a book or any other hard flat surface between your lap and your Mac. There's no need to buy a specific product for this, unless you just want to spend the money.

    well, yeah, but after a while the heat passes trough. I use pillows when I use it in bed and the heat gets trough in 20 minutes. Maybe with a thermal blanket or something. I know it's not necessary, but maybe there is a product that would do the job a little better or more comfortably.

    I know you probably already know this, but it's worth mentioning for others who might read your post: Be very careful about using your Mac on pillows, as they can block the vents at the rear, near the hinge. This can cause temps to go even higher.
