Here's a link to our Podium CoolPad review.

If you have any questions about the CoolPad, or any temperature results if you have one already, we'd love to hear from you.

And so is this post.

Doesn't it make the powerbook more unstable? I'd be afraid of it slipping off, say, if my cat jumped on it while I wasn't looking.

My PowerBook is pretty rock solid on the Podium CoolPad, and I have it jacked up to the max. I doubt NitroKitty could flip it, even while standing on a corner and jumping up and down. (Oh oh, now I've said it :-0)

For your numbers on temp.

I have the older model coolpad (the one without the risers).

My powerbook g3 400 runs at 46 degrees C (I think it may have something to do with the fact i seperated the heatsink from the processor by accident a while ago, and i may have made the bond ineffcient).

I havent found anything saying that it shouldnt run at the temp. It still runs cooler than my AMD K6-2 450, with a monster cooling fan.

The swiveling base is convient for demos.
