Default Laptop Heating Up

When my laptop is on for any amount of time the bottom becomes very hot, almost too hot to touch. I'm sure this is from the CPU. I have a Compaq Presario 900 with XP. I don't think this is a problem, but perhaps it could cause one? Is an investment in one of the "cooling devices" for a laptop worth it? If so which one...just the matt that holds it up a little bit or the contraption with a fan on it? Is buying one of these units worth anything?

i have used one of these cooling pads - it's got two fans in the top and it sucks the air down and blows it out the back - it realy works... i've got a Sony Vaio K27 and it gets a bit hot.

it works for me.
