Something for the laptop


When I’m working with my MacBook Pro at home, I’ve always had to be careful not to burn my legs if I was wearing shorts with the laptop resting on top. A couple weeks ago at work I requested something that I could raise my laptop with on my desk. I’d never seen the Belkin’s CushTop, but I was in love at first site. It’s a fairly simple device that works for both small and large laptops, on a desk or on the lap. After using it for one day I knew I needed to get one for home. I ended up checking Belkin’s website and eventually buying one from Amazon. If you’re looking for something to rest your laptop, you might want to consider this.

    Looks nice, but unfortunately this would seem to the inverse of the fringe benefit that most laptop stands provide: that of allowing air to fllow underneath the laptop, and facilitating cooling, thereby extending component life, reducing energy usage, and generally being nicer for the machine and user. This, by contrast, looks like a helluva good insulator for the bottom of the laptop… I bet you could fry an egg on that thing after working on it with a macbook pro for a few hours.

    While everything you mention is true, aren’t the vents that let out the hot air on the top near the monitor? It definitely doesn’t circulate cooler air but I don’t think it’s doing more damage then if you had just left it on a desk.
