Is it in need of additional cooling while on a desk, or is this while it's on your lap? I've never had a cooling issue with a laptop while on a flat surface. :dunno

Yeap, on a wooden lacquered desk. 17in MacBrook Pro. She tends to get a little warm on the bottom and breathes pretty hard.

Did you ever find a stand you liked? Those gel pad ones work for a while but once they heat up and melt they stop absorbing so if you use them for more than a few hours they are no good.

I sure didn’t man. More so due to me being too darn busy to even check out all the recommendations you fella’s have given me. I need to go ahead and hunker down this weekend and settle on one though. :fact

I've noticed my MBP gets hot if I'm really using the processor so I got a cheap Ebay laptop stand with a USB fan on it. I just turn the fan on when I need it and it cools it down pretty fast. If you get one with a fan make sure it blows on the MBP not sucks the air away from. Those kind aren't as effective.
