I'm tempted to work with a cooling pad at home, since my netbook is my primary computer, and if you are following my questions I plan to buy a dual core netbook that I'll use as desktop most of the time.
I want to assemble a little workstation and I want to hook up everything, monitor, keyboard, mouse and cooling fan (if I buy the cooling pad) to the netbook using a usb hub.
I even want to place the netbook vertically so the air can flow freely.
What are the adventages and disadventages of cooling pads with and without fan?
Or a negative and positive past experience from you works for me.
