Hi, I'm looking for a cooling pad that's also an ergonomic stand for $40 or less. Know of any?

Most of the cooling pads I have seen for laptops are just flat with a couple of fans running off a usb port. If you want a cooling pad that will do the job google diy laptop cooling pad.

 

Here is one example but requires a bit of work.

Sams's has two different computer pads (saw they still had them a month ago they were both under $30 but I don't remember the exact amount.

 

1.  Hard slippery plastic model with 3 speed. fans (3 fans).  Your laptop may fall off if you simply blow on it.  I only use this when I have excessive heat build up and on a firm platform, like a desk or table.  It's hard to beat for heat reduction.  Besides it's stellar heat reduction there are no other plus's.  I only use it on a desk or table where your laptop will not fall off the slippery pad.

 

2.   Pillow build into bottom of pad.  Extra pad at base of keyboard These are a gem.  My machines run cool so they typically are used almost all the time.

I've used this type of cooler before, and it works great. Adds a nice tilt and best of all, the fans can be placed exactly where they need to be for any model laptop. Also has a pass-through USB plug so you don't loose a port. And only $18 after rebate!!

Does your laptop slide off of it?

Nope. It has all four rubber feet though. If your laptop is missing any of its feet, it will likely slide of of any angled stand. If so, just get some rubber feet from the hardware store.

Sorry just one more question, why is the price so much higher on amazon?
