Laptop Coolers

I've seen them in PCWorld, but do they really work & does anyone use one or are they just a gimmick?
Seen 1 that is at a slight angle, has 2 fans and is USB powered.

Yes they work really well.

However I use two ice packs (click here bottom of page) in a plastic bag and sit the laptop ontop.

That's why they are in plastic bags.

It was in the bin.

They told me that they did not sell Display Stands and anyway there was a small chip out of it (which was why it was being thrown out).

I said. "Could I have it if I donated a £5'er to the Charity that the Store was supporting that day." Which they were happy to agree to.

I now have a fine, 30 degree, perspex Laptop Stand. Easy to type on, the screen closer to eye level and a good natural airflow underneath. Ace!

A friens of mine has one, it works well, the only problem is the battery only lasts half as long.

Yes i did realise that, though the heat could melt the plastic or water vapour could be a problem.
