take a cake pan & layer it with ice, crushed or cubed, doesnt matter, then add about 1-2 tablespoons of table salt, spreading evenly over top of the ice. the salt will melt the ice a little but more importantly it super cools the ice & creates a layer on top of the ice so that you can set your notebook right on top of it. You now have the Coolest, coolest notebook stand avail, the only way you could get any colder would be to use dry ice, (in which u'd not use the salt, but instead add 1 cup of water in its place - also will give you that cool "Smokey/Foggy/scary" look. (Tell your friends you have a Frankenstein laptop & it can do anything & everything, "even let ur dog out &/or walk the neighbors (dog) into the street & rush hr") Anyways, Sorry to post this here & not in its own instructable but i just dont have the time right now, however if someone else wants to post a vid of this before i get to go right ahead... For now - See ya (P.S. if there is extra room beside your laptop inside your new stand, this would be a GREAT place to keep your cold beverages while you work, They will stay ICE COLD)

great concept accept you risk your laptop getting wet and shorting out and also the intake fans couls suck in some salt.

That's kind of the point i was making - Was being sarcastic, obviously any moisture/condensation near/on/next to a computer is a bad thing... even setting a laptop on ice packs would be a bad idea because of the risk of condensation

if your laptop has 'hotspots' underneath it you can rough up the area with some glasspaper to increase the surface area and hence cool it more efficiently if you dont mind scratchin up your pooter that is! just an idea...

what's glasspaper? where would you find it?

sandpaper :)

would be nice if the video hadn't been removed....

it seems to me that you would want to put this on after the laptop had sometime to warm up because i know from personal experience that electronics preform poorly when they are 1. too hot 2. too cold nice simple idea though!

not so in this case overclockers use dry ice to acheive maximum speeds runs better when cold
