Image via WikipediaI am using a Heatshift pad by Thermapak with the netbook I am typing on and it is a great product. Laptop computers get HOT! The Heatshift pad is a gel pad with rough ridges for air flow. The gel conducts heat away from the Laptop computer and keeps it cool. The Heatshift gel pad is much better than a fan type cooling pad because the Heatshift has no moving parts and does not stir up dust. Try one if you are using a Laptop computer and I know you will like it. I am glad I bought an extra large Heatshift because you can place the Laptop on different portions of the pad to improve its performance even more.
