I am looking for the above as I am always editing photos on my macbook on my lap and it gets very hot.
Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions which to get.
My shortlists so far are:
Targus Lap Chill Mat
Belkin Laptop Cooling Stand
Belkin V2 Laptop Cooling Lounge

or one of these Ergo Station which it just so happens i have one for sale if you want it can only use it on a table though
Thanks Dave. But I need it for on the lap.
I have the Targus lap Chill Mat, and it does a very good job.
Coleslaw, I have the Belkin Laptop Cooling stand (no. 2 in your list), but it is really designed for tables & desks. Great stand in general & for cooling. but the cooling fan is of an open type , leaving it to possibly catch on clothing &/or, most importantly, can create a further heat build up between the lap & the computer as it doesn't dissipate the heat well.
Hope that helps.
I got myself one of these to stop my laptop from heating up my knees.
It works a treat.
I went for the chopping board approach too and it also works for me!
Don't knock it till you tried it Cole.
Not knocking it at all.... just thought that is quite funny....LOL
Chopping board for me too............. except my laptop switches itself off after a few minutes when on battery.
(And no, it's not the power saving settings).
...and what is more they sell chopping boards in sizes and colours to suit all laptops.
what about one of these? A sort of illuminated beanbag/chopping board combo!!
Col a chopping board won't work with a macbook. What you need is an iChoppingBoard.
They come in a gorgeous range of colour choices (well one - brushed aluminium) and it's only £250. It's a bargain as you will be the envy of all your friends.
Please note your existing knives may not be compatible with the iChoppingBoard and will necessitate you buying a new set of iKnives and the iBlock storage system
Rotfl! Very apt!
