    Hello fellow Mac users.

    Here is something I have learned (and many of you probably have too) is that to keep your MBP a little bit cooler:

    Angle it against the edge of something on a flat surface. It works best with a thick book or something that isn't touching the entire back of the laptop. It usually drops my temps around 7C. This way, hot air can rise out of the vents and air can circulate among the bottom of the laptop.

    Anyone using any laptop cooling stands or anything?

    I have an old remote control prompted under my MBP at the back to angle it off my desk. Makes it easier to type since my wrists are being angled upwards and the screen is more off the ground too.

    Whenever I use my MBP flat on a table, it looks weird because I'm so used to having it prompted up.

    maybe old remote controls or phone books should be incorporated into the next MB and MBP designs
