Coolpad Traveler vs Podium - Mac Portable

Hey gang, I was planning on investing in a coolpad after I get my 12" Powerbook. I'm debating between the traveler & podium. From the graphic it looks like the podium can raise up higher. There's a $15 difference between them, I'm wondering is the podium worth the extra 15 and would it really do much additional cooling. Any thoughts would be great. Hopefully I'll be buying my PB within the next 3 weeks!. Cheers, Rick...

    Default Coolpad Traveler vs Podium

    Hey gang,

    I was planning on investing in a coolpad after I get my 12" Powerbook. I'm
    debating between the traveler & podium. From the graphic it looks like the
    podium can raise up higher. There's a $15 difference between them, I'm
    wondering is the podium worth the extra 15 and would it really do much
    additional cooling.

    Any thoughts would be great. Hopefully I'll be buying my PB within the next
    3 weeks!.

    Cheers,

    The price difference should be more like $10.
    I bought the traveler because it fits in my laptop case better. The only
    reason I can think of to get the podium is the greater angle for typing
    purposes or propping the screen higher when attached to an external
    keyyboard--that was not a factor for me, as I wanted it for better
    cooling (it works, BTW). I don't know that any FURTHER tilt would make
    the cooling better.

    The Traveler also weighs 6 oz less.

    I use the traveler on my 17" PB. One thing I've noticed is that the
    pressure of my right hand on the corner of the PB warps the base.
    Occasioanlly my CD locks and won't accept a CD. Rebooting creates a
    loaud "clunk" and the cd drive works again.
