I am pretty **bleep** about laptop heat because I hate it when laptops run hot, and that's what killed the battery of my old Dell, and eventually killed my Dell.
I'm just wondering how well chill pads would work. I notice that the intake as well the exhaust for the cooling system is on the rear left side, and none of it's on the bottom. I'm just wondering if running a chill pad type of cooler would do any good. I know that it would probably cool the surface, but how would the air get inside the computer if there is no intake on the bottom?
Are there any options to have a fan right by the air intake?
I feel like I'm talking about cars.

Thank you very much. I was just making sure that the intake was on the bottom of the laptop and that the exhaust is not.
I'll get a cooling pad just to keep my system super cool. It might make a slight difference in longevity.

The T510 doesn't even get hot, the cooling system in the ThinkPad works very well. If you notice it getting hotter than it used to it is time to open it up and clean out the heatsink.
