I am in the market for a new laptop cooling pad.  Right now I have a Targus-brand model with two fans, that adjusts up to a height of about 4 inches.  It does the job *reasonably* well, but I'd like something a bit more suitable for a gaming situation.  The laptop tends to get a bit warm when I'm gaming and I'd like to keep it as cool as possible.  Also, if I could get something that's *not* plastic, that would be great (I always feel like, no matter how well-made it is, plastic just feels....flimsy.)


Right now I'm running a Dell 15R 5537, so it's a 15.6 incher.  I've heard conflicting reports on whether it's best to get a cooling pad that just fits the size of the laptop or get one that's slightly bigger.  I'm willing to pay up to $100 for it, but obviously if I go to the high end of that range, I'd like it to be a really decent cooling tool.  


Any recommendations from the more seasoned users out there?

Hello.  :)


I found a lot of laptop cooling pads from Newegg. You'll have to do some research and find out which is best for you and what's in your price range. The Cooler Master brand seems very popular, but I would read the reviews and their manuals to see if it's compatible with your Dell laptop.
