Cool Your Laptop With Bottle Caps

Old laptops running hot become a particular problem in summer. If you need a quick fix for an overheating machine, you can increase the airflow by propping the laptop up on four plastic bottle caps from larger soft drink bottles.

Reddit user afhn_ shares this tip, which also works well with console gaming systems. If you have ongoing heat issues, you should consider buying a chill mat, building your own stand or giving your system a makeover.
