My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite P505-S8945. It has two air intake fans on the bottom toward the back and two exhausts on the very back. I would like to find a cooling pad that would push air from outside into the intake fans on the bottom. I would prefer steel or aluminum for better cooling and durability. I need this because I'm planning to install UT2004 on it and that game can cause a machine to run hot!

I have checked different pads on Amazon, including the Targus PA248U Notebook Chill Pad and the Antec USB-Powered Notebook Cooler. I liked the Antec one except I read that it sucks air away from the bottom of the laptop, which is not good if the laptop has intake fans on the bottom. The Targus was said in several reviews to not last very long and one even said it was miswired and caused a short in the laptop's USB port!

What cooling pads has everyone had the best experience with? Am willing to pay over $50 to get the best quality if necessary.

Thank you.

That looks pretty good, actually. The problem mentioned about no clearance could be solved by propping it up on a book. I just might go for that next Friday (pay day).

Thanks.
