The only way a laptop cooler would help is if it could get cooler air into the laptop and out faster than just the original fan. Most times there are not large enough vents/openings for this to happen. Only 'laptop cooler' I can think of that can help the most is a blower fan that attaches to the exhaust vents of the laptop. The blower fan pulls air through the vents/heatsinks faster (but is loud).

Best way to keep the laptop as cool as possible is to limit the CPU frequency when you're not doing anything intensive. So keeping at it's minimum speed possible/voltage. That and making it sure active cooling is on.

does it help that there is 3 vents on the bottom of the laptop for air to go in to the laptop or still doesn't matter
