Do you think cooling pad is enough to save my laptop from over heating?

It might be. I have a Toshiba lap top and they tend to overheat. I looked for a cooling rack but found them a bit expensive. i used books at each corner for awhile which was tricky because they had to be well balanced! Then I got a baking rack and it works great! No more trouble and it only costs about 3 bucks!

Hmm, a baking rack does sounds like a pretty good idea, there's no real space between the rubber grips and the actual laptop bottom itself, to be honest.

Yeah, that's the trouble with my Toshiba, there's very little space for air to travelt hrough. But the cheapo cooling rack that you're supposed to use to cool cookies - is just the right height!

I have never bought any cooling pad for my laptop. but I guess soon i have to go for it too as my laptop is heating too much. For now i am using my sister novel to put it at side bottom part so laptop don't get that much heat. But i guess i should do something more about it..

Using a cooling for heat protection can help, but not totally rely on it. You should be often using your laptop in an air-conditioned room.

I think yes, cooler pad is a complement to a laptop or notebook accessories commonly used by the users of laptops or notebooks as pendinggin. Cooler pad is equipped with a cooling fan. which serves to reduce heat and prevent the risk of overheating or hang. Should cooler pad is used, if a laptop or notebook that is used in a long time, or over three hours. Cooler pad has side effects, laptop or notebook batteries run out quickly. Suggested use of the same time cooler pad laptop or notebook that is currently connected to the mains.

Personally i dont use the cooling apd, but i think anything is not preferable to work for a long tme and we must give time to any electronic device so that it's performance can be as desired. The pad might work but if used for long time continuously then the syatem might get overheat...depending on the company and the configuration.

I use a cooling pad myself for my laptop and it helps lessen the chances of overheating. But as much as possible, I turn off my laptop if I've been using it for more than 3 hours just to let it rest for a few minutes. And I rarely use it in hot areas. I mean, as much as possible, the room should have an air-conditioning unit or at least the ventilation is great.
