I have a T30 here and it was getting real hot and it cooled down in what
seems like about 50% by elevating the laptop up by a 1/2" on all four
corners. The hot air exhaust cooled down in about 90 seconds.
I feel laptops like this should have "lifts" on all four corners that
fold in and out like the lifts on keyboards.
This is not the first time I've had to do this. In a rush I just grab 4
packages of 3x3 (inch) postit notes and slip one package under each
corner of the laptop.
