I've recently acquired a nice 17" Acer laptop - the TravelMate 7720 - and am interested in putting that Core 2 Duo to Folding purposes, however am a bit concerned about the amount of heat this notebook will potentially produce. Therefore I'd like to find a good-quality cooling pad to help with that issue.

I think I would be able to find a good cooling pad off of places such as NCIX and TigerDirect, however the large size of my notebook doesn't seem very compatible with most coolers out there, which are designed for the more standard 15" notebook size.

If anyone could point me in the right direction regarding this, I would be most helpful. If I can't locate a suitable pad in the meantime I just may consider making my own out of wood and surplus case fans. Just anything to provide a constant and steady airflow over the underside of my new notebook.

This cooler looks good: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6834995511 It has a nice big fan so it should cool the laptop good.

Mine's a Targus - bought it from Staples a while back. I only get better air flow if I put something under it to angle it.
