Acer Ferrari 5000, solution for the heat

On my last post I mentioned that one of my minor complaints was when I used my new Acer 5000 was when I used an external mouse there was a blast of heat that wormed your mouse hand, if you are right handed. Not a big deal really. But that problem has been completely solved by using a cheap USB powered notebook cooler, it makes big difference. Almost no heat at all now if you use the mouse on the right side. But I am using a docking station and that was a slight problem because of the height of the cooler. But that was solved easily by putting the docking station on top of two hockey pucks.

So far the Ferrari has been one nice machine. I am not a big fan of Windows so I can't wait until I get a "real" OS on it!
