Make a quick and simple laptop stand that will keep your laptop cool for under $10. After looking for a laptop stand for my new macbook pro I decided to create one myself out of a metallic document holder I bought for $6. It keeps the computer off the surface, gives excellent air circulation and elevates it to a comfortable typing angle and it even matches my laptop.
Step 1: Materials you'll need
Here are the materials you'll need:
1 Metal Mesh Document Holder (I bought mine at Staples for $6, it comes in black or sliver)
1 Roll of Anti-slip shelf liner (bought it at the dollar store)
1 Small block of rubber - This corner piece came in the packaging of my air-conditioner to protect the corners. You can probably find something similar at the hardware or dollar store such as a rubber sandpaper block; just cut the sandpaper sides off.
