    U know those balls that shops sell to put it underneath ya laptop?

    I got one of those.

    Not yet, but I will buy one if I passby and see one....the theory is simpler...it works like those passive CPU heatsink where the heat is being conducted by the larger fins....you need to observe how your notebook intake and exhaus the heat...my IBM X30 has no problem because the air intake is from the right and exhaus from the left and bottom.....except that the heat at bottom is trapped...so the stick will helps.....

    I won't consider those with fan one because it will takes up 1 USB port and draw more power incase I run on battery mode

    You have to remove the stick for the balls to work i think.

    My macbook is on my table and it feels hot but heck care, i still have 3 notebooks to use if it burns.

    don't be too cocky with this setup. the heat build up will shorten your HDD lifespan incredibly. Mine died near its 3rd b'day. It's always good to keep things cool.. It'll extend the eqpt lifespan a lot more.

    Not to forget the build in fans etc will work less harder if the devices are cool
