well my friend says that wrapping an ice pack in a tea towel then sitting the laptop on that is quite effective. personally i think he is a bit crazy, you can buy bases that laptops sit on with additional cooling fans that work quite effectively.

Yeah, those tables things with fans on the button and you plug them into a USB port and the fans turn on . My dell doesnt get to hot, but my gateway does and the fan is freakin loud, reaches near 60C

I haven't had any overheating problems with my Dell i9300, but yesterday, I put some AS5 on the CPU and GPU. It dropped the temps a little. You might give that a try to begin with.

Depending on what kind of laptop you have, some programs are out that allow you to control the fans.

Does it have a Pentium M? Those things are good to 100° C.
