I'm sorry to up this thread, I don't know the policy to this sort of thing on this forum, but usually I find better to reuse an existing thread than creating a new one. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
I don't know if there is a cooling pad specially for macs, i've seen one on google with the fan hole shaped like an apple, but i don't know if it was real.
I too have a concern about overheating. I live in a tropical country, it's summer here, really really hot. I kinda feel sorry for my MBP.
I don't own a cooling pad, and don't intend to get one because this sort of thing is really expensive here (like $70, a crappy one) and this pisses me off.
I could use an external fan, but it doesn't seem to do much difference, I don't know why. CPU is at 55ºC, I'm using Safari, aMsn and iTunes. I know it's not much, but when I play games (on Win7) it gets insanely hot. The external fan doesn't seem to help much. Anybody has a good idea on where to place the fan and all?
I'd appreciate that.
Thank you, and please excuse my english.
