Have a new laptop and I hear there are accessories to cool your laptop?

P.S. It may be awhile before I respond, I am going in the hospital tonight for some tests (maybe a week or so). So I ask for your kindness and patience).

Here is an assortment of options.

The trick is not to block the fans.   You can add to that with devices like in my link (click the "open gallery" button).

Here's the one I bought my wife - Belkin FL5055-BLK

But I got it at Target for about $15, if I recall correctly.
The fan's powered by USB, so if your laptop doesn't have a USB port that probably won't work for you. She wanted it in pink, but all they had was black (I don't think it's made in pink, anyway).

a normal laptop should stay cool enough - if you  clean the fans - and inside (if possible) regularly

You might have a modern environment with all sorts of high-tech equipment, but what makes it worthwhile is how you seamlessly bring together the presentation with audio, video and lighting. The ATEN Control System provides integrated control and system automation.

Hi GadgetDude,

If you can't get a cooling system then the next best thing is to have the ability to control your fans. In fact this is what I personally do so that I don't have to carry another piece of equipment when I travel. The app is called smc-Fan-control and I think that you will love it. Here is the link: http://www.eidac.de

It's free but the developer has an unobtrusive Paypal link, once you install the app, under Donate or Info/About/Paypal

Side not: One of the best things about smc-fan-control is that you can set it to startup when you turn on your Mac, as well as you can set the fan speed which will automatically spin up to your preferred rpm.

Take care and hopefully the Dr. says nothing but good things.

Tailoreddigital hit it right on the bullseye! The other members offered really great suggestions that will be remembered.


NOTE TO THE MONITORS: I regret the stupidity of your email about not answering these suggestions for 3 or 4 days. You possess neither intelligence, compassion nor understanding! Did you not read that I informed the membership that it would be a few days to answer because I was in  the hospital for some tests?!  My wife is very annoyed that she had to bring this laptop to the hospital (where I am typing this) because of the annoyance.  
YOUR INSENSITIVITY AND RUDENESS MAKES YOU DESPICABLE!

You're talking to a mailer 'bot, 'Dude.

There is nobody personally sending out the reminder emails to the thousands of questions that get asked on here every day... they're sent (if I recall correctly) after 3 days, then again at 10 days, then again at 24 days... if there's been no response from the asker after that a cleanup volunteer checks in personally. So if it seemed cold, insensitive and impersonal, that's because it was a machine talking.  :-)
