Ok after nearly burning my stomach on the bottom of my laptop ive thought about getting a cooling pad, what i was wanting to know is if it's worth getting one at all and if anyone have any recommendations at all.

Thanks :thumbsup:

My brother in law claims his works great. Don't know what brand, but I'm sure it's a cheap one. Don't forget to blow out the vent for better air circulation

I got one in BKK 2 years ago. Seem to remember it cost 300BHT (AU$10) so not expensive. My main concern was to keep laptop air intake from being blocked by clothes, doona etc. but also keeps Toshiba a bit cooler.

Cheers

Roger :thumbsup:

Thats the main problem with my laptop, the outlet space is in the back right hand corner, just where the laptop would be resting on someones leg, using a cooling pad would enable me to have it lifted up so fabric isn't blocking the vent and to cool the whole underside of the laptop.

I hardly use it that much anyways its normally the fiance, i like sitting on my PC instead :huh:

Another thing I suggest to people with laptops is to get right-angle plug adapters for headphones and the power cord if they're straight. They can swivel and do not cause any undo strain on the jacks and solder joints on the system board

Mine already has the right angle just before it plugs into the laptop so thats not an issue but that is a good tip never the less.

I now wonder how many people have repeated bought new power adapters with straight connections before realising this lol
