I want to take my laptop into bed with me now. But I'm worried if I have it on my lap without the duvet on me it might get too hot. I have no special stands or any kind of equipment, so.... my question is: How can I use my laptop in without it getting so hot it overheats?

I want to be able to use it right now without having to go out and buy any kind of equipment or accessories!

Some kind of flat thing that you can put on your lap to set the laptop on.(kind of like a table top)

There are bed stables (don't know what they're called) you can get and set it one of them.

Or if the laptop is small enough you could try a book.

A large book or a like breakfast in bed table thing.

Depends on you laptop, but i'm using mine in bed right now and because my fan is on the left hand side of the underside of the laptop i've got the laptop so that it's on me, but it's over enough so that the fan can suck in some air.

I've used my laptop for hours like this and i've not caught fire. Probably best you don't fall asleep with it on you though, just to be safe.

Just try to keep the fans clear and not obstructed by the bed/other items. put something under the device to allow air circulation, or is the fans are on the back, be sure the back/side of the computer is not covered in any way.

You should get a cooling pad (chill pad, cold pad, etc.)
