laptop stand suggestions, again ...

I bought a Belkin Cushtop. [catalog.belkin.com] It's sturdy and light.

I use it with a 2.2 MBP.

The Cushtop allows zero circulation beneath the laptop, which gets hot enough to run the fan (on low.) The top gets quite warm. The thin strip of aluminum above the keyboard, below the screen hinge is too hot to touch for long. The underside of the laptop near that same area is hotter yet.

At work, on my desk. I prop up the MBP with a Softalk phone receiver shoulder rest for the same reason.

Don't laugh, it works.

Anyone have one of these? [www.myplaceworkstation.com]
It caught my eye at Bed Bath and Beyond earlier this week.

Continued proof that 'laptops' aren't for the lap.

Same thing with a Targus name on it.

The mstand is a little pricey, but if you don't need portability, it's the slickest thing going.

There are a lot of USB cooling stands (a couple of fans built in) but they tend to look cheap. I have no idea how well they work.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Using it now, in bed.
