Hey guys,

I'm thinking about getting a laptop cooling pad for my hp pavilion dv6000, which i think sucks in air.
Would i have to get a pad which also sucks in air (which also has the problem of dust getting clogged)
or could i possibly get a pad which blows air away, and somehow turn the fans off?
Or would it not matter?

Thanks

Both the laptop and cooling pad have an intake and exhaust. They don't just do one or the other. The intake is at the back of the laptop and the exhaust is on the bottom. That is why it is important the have the laptop on a hard surface. When a laptop starts to get hot, it means the intake is usually clogged. Sometimes this can be fixed by getting a can of compressed air and directing the nozzle in the vent opening and blowing it out
Laptops do run hot and a cooling pad will help. The same cleaning procedure applies
