Unless you're maxing out the processors all day, all the time, there really isn't a reason for a "chill mat." Apple's notebooks run warm under load (which is why they never refer to them as "laptops" -- gotta protect the boys!), but they are exquisitely well-designed to vent heat properly. Metal, it turns out, dissipates heat better than plastic! Who knew?
