I have a really hot laptop. So much so it burns my lap and heats up to the point you can feel the heat rising through the keyboard. So simple solution right, buy a laptop cooler. Right?
Well no. The most important thing I now realise you should check before you buy a laptop cooler is to check the direction of airflow from your laptop, i.e. in the bottom out the back or in the back and out the bottom. This dictates whether your cooler should suck or blow. get it wrong and you'll starve your laptop of air by creating a dead space.
On my laptop, it kind of works. It cools the processor but not the hard drive or the GPU, them it actually heats up. So I cant use it with the fans on. I just use it as a laptop stand, which actually cools better than I expected. But this was not what I bought it for.
So, you live, you learn. Now I have a rather expensive laptop stand.
