Hey Ive decided to get a 15" macbook pro when leapord comes out, theres just one thing that Im gonna need, Ive heard of a usb powered device that sits between your lap and your laptop, it helps keep the bottom the the laptop cool with some sort of heat dissipation and also protects men from overheating their genital areas which im thinking is bad, can anyone give me some links to something of this sort?

    I have the older version of this: http://www.byteccusa.com/product/coo...500/nc-500.htm



    Works well, but it has to be on a flat surface. The newer MacBook Pros run a bit cooler than the first gen ones, I don't really notice mine getting all that hot on my lap, personally.



    Take a look around that website though, they have some other styles too.

    I can't see how would those help as the MBP doesn't have any air inlets/outlets on the bottom.

    I guess it just keeps your lap cool, and also ive heard that there are some that keep their own surface cool which causes the macbook to stay cooler too.

    I think im gonna go with the lapcool but ive heard from people that its not really required for a macbook pro since it doesn't overheat ever.

    I need something also because my laptop gets so hot not even a 12 inch pillow is enough to keep the heat off me. It is nice in the winter though.
