I use a trivvet (sp?) - the thing you put hot dishes
onto at the table. A noteboook also stops are, a cookie
rack or trivvet lets air flow underneath.
Do *not* remove keyboards to allow more air - you change
carefully planned (we hope) airflow plans. Air comes
straight to the fan -not to the fan after being drawn
over the CPU and RAM.
The LCD can be handy.
