    Hi,

    I posted in the wrong forum first, duh! I'm new to the forums and to Mac.

    I am coming from a Toshiba that overheated a lot. I got a chill mat to go with it.

    Now I ordered my Macbook pro 2011 15 inch 2.0 mhz with a 500 gig harddrive.

    I'm wondering if a chill mat is a good idea?

    You can run it for fun. Probably won't do anything for your MBP.

    I heard they have overheating issues.

    Have you experienced this?

    the fan on your mbp is on the back of the computer, where the screen hinge is, not on the bottom, so it wont do anything

    Exactly so it wouldn't do anything.

    People here just don't understand what overheating is. Your MBP will be fine in terms of temperature

    Yep, The vents being blocked by the lid hinges. No good for the designs. They need to re-make the body to create a vents on the bottom and top above of keyboard.

    My old sony lappy still works, the vents are on bottom, back, side and top too.
