Michael Leddy has done a quick hack on his laptop. He bought a bakeware made by Ekco, which cost $3.99 at an outlet store. Putting this underneath of the laptop will help to ventilate the heat:
A cheap and simple way to help cool a laptop: use bakeware. My cooling rack, made by Ekco, cost $3.99 at an outlet store. With this rack and a tiny desk fan, my laptop runs 8 to 10 degrees cooler than it used to.
Formulaic disclaimer: Placing a computer on a piece of bakeware might lead to scratches or other damage, so be careful…
