I saw one on my desk this morning. Caught him napping. But he was a foot from my laptop. What if he thought it was a nice warm place to nest? How does one deal with that situation? Spray the desk with repellent, I guess.

Always use a covered cup, rather than drinking from a regular cup.

I usually try to have my drinks on a different table than my computer. I like to have a little table off to the side for food and drink.

Also, I found a really neat notebook cooler at TigerDirect. It’s made by Thermaltake. It actually looks like a pot holder.

There’s something inside that helps keep the notebook cool. It really works.

I’ve been in situations myself where I dropped my computer a couple times and it didn’t work, now I have a new one and it’s being well taken care of. Nice tip!

Very informative article, which has really had an impact on me as I am now typing on my MacBook pro minus the incase sleeve which is usually left underneath. I will also try in the future to only use it on my lap for light browsing and nothing that will raise the temp too much.

Thanks again!

I thought the programs graphics were too much for the machine. I bought a new computer (its ok, I love computers and always looking for an excuse to upgrade. I had some warranty warranty left on the gateway so I brought it in to have it looked at. They blew out the vent that had filled with lint, and presto, it works as well as the new one for Architectural Modeling. He had me buy some compressed air to blow it clean now and then. Happy Computing!

I too am guilty of using a laptop on my lap..hmm wonder why I thought that would be OK?, I have to admit it’s a great way to warm you legs though.
