Thermal pad for your laptop?

Do you use one?
I've been looking to buy one of these things that can be used for your lap. I am not looking for the one that is used on a desk, but rather when your using your laptop on your lap.

When my Apple Titanium used to work, I had to put a "blue ice" block under it on the table to keep it from overheating.

As far as using my current MacBook on my lap? I just like to think of the heat as the byproduct of work getting done. Because really that's all I'm doing with it, work work work.

I don't, however as I sit here with my laptop on a towel on my lap, I think it may be a good idea to invest in one.

Ha! I'm not worried about my swimmers, they have been, ugh, fixed.

In fact, maybe we should pass out hot laptops to more of the male population of the world. Where is U2's support for that?

I use my Macbook's sleeve as a pad. Works fine enough.
