Laptop Stand That Is A Giant Heatsink Seems Like A Match Made In Heaven

I am sure you are familiar with heatsink. Typically milled out of aluminum, heatsink sole purpose is to mitigate overheating by dissipating heat quickly from high heat-generating equipment, such as a processor or LED elements.
