I am curious if anyone has experience with cooling pads or any other cooling options for Macbook pro (non Unibody). I am interested in the best option and also what the most economical solution is as well.

Best cheap option I did on my pre unibody was to use thick erasers the big ones squared
one in each top corner underneath it elevated the MacBook Pro just enough to allow better convection and dropped the temp 15℉ and being erasers they don't slide out easily or mare the bottom.
