And just for the record

And just for the record, since it seems so many people forget fundamental grade school physics... Heat RISES, so putting some kind of cooling pad on the BOTTOM of a laptop is going to have a minimal effect if that. Those cooling pads are scams IMO, little more than a placebo to make people feel all warm and fuzzy about having done something about the problem, when in reality it's like relying on the overflow drain in your sink (that little hole near the top edge) to counter the effects of a faucet that won't turn off. Best case scenario, you're managing the problem, you're not actually doing anything to solve the problem like calling a plumber (which would be akin to Kees' suggestions).
Call me crazy, but I prefer to cure the disease whenever possible, not simply treat the symptoms in perpetuity.
