I love my MacBok Pro, but it gets far too hot far too quickly when I have it sitting in my lap, and as I got this machine specifically to have the flexibility to use it when and where I want. At the moment, that means writing this post as I sit on the couch, next to Sarah as she makes a couple of giant pillows for the floor. The only reason I’m able to do this is the iLap Laptop Stand from Rain Design. After reading the reviews on Amazon I ordered it and it arrived in two days. Since then I’ve used it while lounging in a couple of chairs and on my desk as a replacement for the old laptop stand. It has been a tremendously satisfying experience so far and I highly recommend that you check them out, especially if you are using an MBP, or other laptop that runs hot.
They have a couple of models (15” for the MacBook Pro, 13.3” for the MacBook ), so the bases are covered if you have something other than a MacBook Pro. Anyway, I thought I’d share the info in the hopes that others may find it useful too. Hopefully this will lead to me posting more often as it won’t require that I set up the comp at my desk!
