$9.99 Need a good laptop cooler? Try this one!

I recently got a laptop from Staples, and I noticed that the laptop really burns my lap. I have no idea that an i5 can even get that hot.
A trip to the local Staples, Futureshop and Bestbuy made me realize that there was no way I'd buy the laptop cooler from them; it was so expensive.

After some googling I found this laptop cooler online:

Ordered it 5 days ago, received it today, and it was free shipping.

And I must say, it worked like a charm! The big 16cm fan really did the job. The laptop was noticeably cooler too. I used Core Temp and I was surprised to notice a 3°C drop in temperature after using the fan. I don't know if all laptop fans also do this, but this one does.

It fits my 15" laptop and is pretty comfortable on my lap.
It's stylin' too.

How old is the laptop? If it runs that hot that it burns you and its an i5, I'd say something is wrong with its cooling system, either the fan is clogged or the heatsink isn't mounted properly. What does coretemp say the CPU temp is at average load?
