    I am in no doubt it does but it has nothing to do with my question seeing as it doesn't have a USB dedicated cooler fan opposed to the 3 links I just posted. I am mainly interested in knowing if anybody had any experience using a dedicated cooling pad and a stand like the iLap or the Griffin elevator?

    I didn't make the assumption that you wanted only fans. The iLap does in fact help keep the computer cool by transfering the heat to it from the MacBook Pro and by creating more surface space for airflow.

    I would apologize, but I can't seem to bring myself to do it after the tone of your response.

    Looking at that two things you are trying to combine I'd say it won't work. I've seen the elevator in action and that combined with another thing that is angled would probably mean your computer constantly sliding off the stand.

    You shouldn't apologize as you had no idea of my intentions as I see it now.
    I apologize for my tone. I had just been fed up with quick responses of which the only meaning was to promote their own equipment, not even regarding to read the OP intentional meanings (which I ultimately classified your response under seeing as you didn't give any additional hints to why the iLap was good).

    I was just thinking that the elevator had some rubber thingys to keep the computer/laptop coolpad on it and the laptop on top would work fine as it also has rubber thingys...

    A small square fan at the bottom would be what I would do if I were you. I love my griffin elevator and am looking at placing some kind of small fan at the bottom to help keep it cool.

    I just bought this a couple weeks ago and I'm very happy with it. Previously just running a few basic programs by MBP would be up at 160-165 degrees Fahrenheit (71-74 C) but now with that stand and the fans on (which are relatively quiet, with music on I can't hear them) the temp is around 130-135 (54-57 C).
