Is a stand necessary for the MacBook Pro when it is used extensively all day sitting flat on a table?

Thanks for your information.

    Hi Vernon,

    Usually not necessary, but helpful in cooling MBP. I built a stand to raise the rear of mine about 2" and the front about a quarter of an inch, and this setup helps keep MBP considerably cooler (air circulation).

    I have had a stand from the beginning - nearly 12 months now - and it saves your hands and RSI and keeps laptop cool; however I found when I got a new printer it was too close to laptop and heat from printer made laptop hot us. I resited printer. Stand is in two pieces, clear acrylic so look good and is easy to assemble and undo if you want to take it with you. It's a Griffen elevator notebosok stand. I paid around £35.00 for it.
    Can also recommend Logitech cordless keyboard and mouse [as when the laptop is on stand it is not advisable to use its keyboard].
    Having this package makes life a lot easier.
