Recommend a good laptop cooling pad?

I have a dell inspiron 1440. When it was designed they designed it so that when you open the screen, the fan on back of the computer is blocked by the screen. Also it gets hot underneath it. I keep it on a hard plastic, to help it breathe, but it doesn't seem to help much. I want to get a Laptop cooling pad, but there are so many on ebay, I have no clue which one is good or bad.

My laptop is 14 inches. If anyone can recommend some that are good, I would really appreciate it.

    I have a good cooling pad...brand: Targus. (I know nothing else)

    Tip: Never get Dell. Dell sucks. Acer ftw.

    I can tell you what not to buy. Never, ever, for a moment consider buying Belkins plastic laptop tray with built in fan. I went through two of those in about two months. They will literally fall apart on you and the tiny fan somehow manages to create the sense a learjet is flying just feet above your house.

    I had trouble with my laptop overheating also.. I ended up having to buy a cooling pad like the one in the video below. Works like a charm and runs cooler now!

    Here:http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php

    use this to manage your fan speed.

    Also you can go into your battery settings and manage processor usage to prevent overheating and such. Idk if that's the case.

    Otherwise I heard you can buy cheep and durable ones at FiveBelow or good ones at BestBuy
