Hi, I just bought a chill pad for my powerbook and it seems to be blowing air on to the comp instead of sucking it away like it is supose to, maybe i misunderstood what its supose to do. If anyone has one can you tell me which way the air is supose to travel? Thanks

It's supposed to blow air towards the PB. If you'll notice, there are no ventilation holes on the bottom of the coolpad. If it sucked the air away, where would the air go?

Finally I have arrived.....
I have the chill pad from Targus (the silver colored plastic chassis). It sucks in the air from the above and blow out from the back. If you put your hand behind the notebook/chill pad, you feel the air coming out. It works well. It has grooves on the surface and it gives sufficient cooling surface for PB. PB's bottom is so smooth that those grooves are essential for good cooling.

Holy crap... I think you're right... it does suck the air away. All this time I thought it was blowing air on the PB!
