I know this was the same deal as previously posted, but that was over a month ago and prices went up and have now gone back down! Sorry if you think its a repost...I have no vested interest, just trying to help anybody who's looking for this!

# Protect your lap from a hot laptop
# Uniquely designed for comfortable laptop use on the couch, bed or floor
# Made of high-quality, furniture like upholstery
# Convenient storage pocket for your power supply and mouse

Possible Quidco with this also, although im not sure at what % this would track at.

Description



The CushTop provides increased padded comfort when using your laptop on your couch, bed or floor. A convenient storage pocket keeps your power adapter and mouse tucked away. By flipping its platform over, the CushTop can accommodate small or large laptops.

I bought one of these last time it was £9.99 and happily use it with my AAO. I think they're ideal for light netbooks, but I wouldn't recommend it for use with heavier 15-17" laptops. Because the surfaces of the CushTop aren't solid, laptop feet do sink into it, thereby reducing the area of ventilation beneath the laptop.

If you intend to use this with a 15-17" laptop, put a dinner place mat on top of the CushTop to ensure that the area of ventilation doesn't disappear under the weight of the laptop. :thumbsup:

Was about to purchase this until I saw your tip. Thanks :thumbsup: Not much point in having this if you still have to use something to aid the ventilation.

I bought the cush top, then needed a fan to cool it afterwards otherwise my 17" would melt

I suppose they might sink in very slightly if your laptop is made of lead, but they certainly fit into my definition of solid, in fact it even makes a sort of ringing noise if you tap it, only the fabric surface is anything other than "solid." Press on it hard enough, and it probably will sink in, but it will take some pressure, and you will probably bust it in the process.

As it happens, my Acer isn't made of lead, so it doesn't sink in at all, and ventilation is fine, even though it has rubber plugs on the plastic feet which DO compress slightly.

Every time this product comes up, someone goes on about how soft it is, when it isn't! :x

You can even hear how hard/solid it is when she knocks it!

I use a plain glass chopping board which is thin and tough enough and just a bit bigger then the laptop - that provides all the space underneath that is needed and doesn't itself get hot
#9
I prefer the newer cushdesk - http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/10043544/Belkin-Laptop-CushDesk-Pitch-Black-Soft-Grey/Product.html

The cushtop raises the laptop too high for me, and the cushdesk is solid so the laptop can't sink in to it.

Maybe your laptop has adequate clearance for air underneath?

The Belkin fan I use has made permanent dents into the foam with a 17" Dell on top.

My Dell isn't flat underneath either, the battery pack adds a further angle but it does get really hot still without extra ventilation.

I've just unplugged my fan and I'm giving this a try at the moment http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/7738542/Belkin-CoolStrip-F5L033NGGRY-For-Laptop-Non-Powered-Laptop-Cooling-Grey/Product.html £6.49 http://images.play.com/covers/7738542m.jpg

I have this and it's really good. Hard surface and cushioned underneath with a slant, don't think it's much more at play either.

Yes.
If it has enough clearance on a table, it will have enough on one of these.

These are quite good as it is a hard surface and cushioned at the bottom -

They can be bought on Fleabay for around a tenner.

I don't bother with the light or the drink holder parts but others may be appreciative of them.

A friend bought one.
It's OK

I own one of these and I dont like it. It is solid but darn urgly and far too bulky for what is needed. Anyone wants to offer me £7 for a barely used one I will post it for free.

There must be variations of this, yours sounds like it's carved out of rock, where as mine is like the name implies, a cushion.

From the description "The CushTop provides increased padded comfort when using your laptop" padded comfort ie not rock solid.

Is it safer to say don't buy if your airintake is on the underside of the laptop?

I just use a bean bag lap tray. Works with the laptop and you can use it for a TV dinner. Ours is a little wider than the laptop so you can use a mouse, which I prefer. Costs about a fiver from a market stall or a tenner if you want a posh design.

I ordered a cushtop from play.com on the 27th december and received it on monday :/ However, i am very impressed with the cushtop and does not raise my laptop (15") too high. One point though, an image on the website shows using the inside compartment to store a charger, but unfortunately the bulky parts of the charger don't fit in. Apart from that though, well worth the money :).

Great shout. This looks really good. You should post the deal.

Watch your laptop doesn't slip of it and on to the floor!! Had one and sold it again for this reason.

It LOOKS like a cushion, but is some sort of firm foam inside, (covered in a fabric) it is light, reminiscent of say polystyrene, but firmer, and thuds when you tap it! If I sat on it it might bust, and compress, but normal use won't compress it.

The vents are in the bottom of my laptop.

Brought one and i hate it! too bulky

Same here ive had mine a couple of years and very happy with it and no sign of sinking !

The centre slot is just right for keeping my Nokia E71 in when connected to my laptop.
