Mine seemed to get pretty hot. I was watching a DVD and put in on my bed. An hour and a half into watching the movie, I moved the 8050. The spot where the notebook rested was pretty hot - as hot as clothes coming out of a dryer. That definitely does not sound like your experiences, does it? Did I block any vents on the underside - don't think so..
Thanks, laozx. Looks interesting but I haven't seen a single review anywhere on the web that quantifies how well this works. I don't mean to be an apple-basher but surely those guys want to buy things because it works not because it looks good, right?
laozx: Have you ordered it? I am way out in the East Coast and they don't have any resellers in my state, so I'd have to get it straight from them. It is fairly expensive so I wanted to see if you already bought it and had any opinions on its performance before I took the plunge..
i like the look of this cooler. i looked at the pictures in the gallery. i was wondering if there were any vents or holes on the part that the latop rests on? if there are no holes, how does air circulate under the laptop? or am i missing something.
Well, I called them up and talked to a person who said that using the ilap they were able to increase heat dissipation by 30%. On the Powerbook they ran the test, the fan hardly came on when using the ilap. I think it does help in heat dissipation - the question is how much?
Yea I haven't ordered the ilap, i have just been looking at them. I guess they say cause the way it's angled or whatever heat will dissipate from the back on up. All I really know about it, is what I read from their website.
