Im getting worried about how hot my laptop is getting. On my old one it would get quite hot and then one day it had to be taken in and i didn't get it back due to it costing more than replacing it.

So i heard about mats that help keep your laptop cool, does anyone know where to get a decent one for a decent price? I don't want to open up my laptop because its got a extended warranty on it and i would like to keep it.

And yes i do hear the fan go. and there is plenty of air going around the laptop. I just want to not have a repeat of what happened to the last one.

[besides the replacement is a vista one, i like xp and i don't want to upgrade just yet, vista is great but i like xp more at the moment]

Personally I would be very worried about using an overheating notebook.  There is an underlying problem and cannot be fixed by having a cooling / fan mat underneath. 

You say there is extended warranty.  Why would it cost you money to get it fixed?

Because if they find a problem its free and if they don't i have to pay. It happened to my friend with her toshiba laptop under their standard warranty.

What overheating is to me may be different to them.
