Cooling pad for new aluminum macbook
 
Any suggestions on a cooling pad for the alum macbook, to be used while gaming? Temps run up to 79 celsius, and just wanted something to lower the temp a bit. I noticed that the underside has no vents at all, so I assume the hot air is exhausted somewhere from the back of the computer. If that's the case, will cooling pads that blow air from underneath have any effect at all? Thanks!

The aluminum casing on the MB and MBP acts as a heatsink, so keeping it cool will have an impact on the overall temperatures when their get high. I am using the "Targus Chill Mat for Mac" and it works fine, not noisy at all.

Cooling Pad
 
Just got the one listed above and have to say it is really nice. Seems to keep the notebook cool and is super quiet!! Look for it online as you will save about $10 over the chain electronic stores

I have a friend that just bought this one and he is a big fan.
