laptop stand with fan
check this out! moshi released a $75 laptop stand that is also a usb-powered cooling fan! i have a podium pad which i have had for years and i really like. it adjusts the macbook that i use to a perfect angle (slight bit of adjustment available) and allows me to work much easier with the laptop than if it was on a flat surface.
it keeps the laptop cool (which is important) and creates a more ergonomic work surface. if you work a lot with laptops and do not use an external keyboard, i would highly recommend a stand (and many cost $50-100), check out the zefyr.
other options? share!
