    So, I've read that the Enermaxus Aeolus is top notch as a desk-based laptop cooler... but what works well with a 15" MBP when I'm lounging on the sofa?

    Thanks,

    I have an Akasa x2 fan cooler, it's metal and edgy and not comfortable at all on my lap.. I'm very interested in a new one as well..

    Why not use a towel or something, the fans on the MBP are on the back so you wouldn't be blocking airflow with well pretty much anything you'd use

    A towel would increase the internal temp I guess..

    I picked up a $20 piece from the local Target today... it's a cloth cover over a hollow rectangular-tube kinda thing... one side fits 15", the other 17" (supposedly) but it seems to be working alright. It's not so soft that the laptop sinks into it.

    Obviously, it's not conducting any additional heat away from the laptop so it won't help cool the laptop... but it does eliminate the instances of getting scorched legs. Maybe I need to be wearing pants while watching TV and surfing the net? :cool:

    iLap. My sister has this thing from Crate & Barrel Kids? It's like a bean bag bottom with hard 1/3rd-inch wood thick surface on the top. Comfortable yet stable. Not really cooling, but leg protection.
