I use the antec notebook cooler

Edit: It's got 2 fans which blow air out the back, its powered by usb (however, the usb end has a usb port in itself, so you don't waste a usb port), and it has 2 settings of hi or low though I leave it on high all the time.

I'm a movement by myself.

I'm using the iLap, it works great (no fans needed). It's a little on the pricey side but it's totally worth it.
