I remember that there was a discussion in here recently that included laptop coolers.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a cooler for my 17" Dell?

While that would keep it cooler, I think the increased moisture wouldn't help.....

If moisture is a problem....

You could always use dry ice. Laughing

No, No. The correct use of ohiomike's suggested equipment is to take a couple of chilled bottles from the ice-box, dry them and stand them on the laptop to cool it, not forgetting to put another couple of bottles into the ice-box. When they've warmed up a little, so as not to waste them, pour them down your throat and replace them with another couple of chilled bottles from the ice-box, dry them and stand them on the laptop to cool it, not forgetting to put another couple of bottles into the ice-box.

Bump!

Seriously though, I want to get one & I would like to order it BEFORE the end of the year (I can write it off then).
