I've got a 5680 laptop. I used the Targus Traveler CoolPad for awhile until my Nexus TDD-3000 heatpipe platform arrived. Both seem to do the job of allowing better airflow to get to the intake fans underneath the laptop. Fan doesn't have to run as hard to get same amount of cool air inside. You could use anything handy to elevate your laptop if you keep it on a desk.
I like the Nexus also for those rare times I have the laptop on my lap since it is a stable platform and I know the intakes won't get blocked.
Normally, I use a wireless mouse/keyboard from Microsoft so I don't have to deal with the hot air coming out of the left side of the laptop. The heat has never been that bad but noticible with extended use.
