Laptop cooling: Laptop cooling is a must if you don't want your laptop to die of overheating. A few number of people consider on how to cool their laptop at the time of purchasing it. Today's laptops pack in some serious processing capabilities, and yes the more powerfully your processor works at high load, the more heat it generates. There are two types of graphics, integrated and discrete. Discrete Graphics (Nvidia and AMD) used in gaming laptops for extreme performance tend to run hotter the longer you use them. The heating has to be minimized else you would end up overheating your laptop. Integrated runs less hotter comparatively, however if you use your laptop for long hours, you require cooling.
Easy ways to keep your laptop cool :
1) Place your Laptop on a Table.
( Avoid your bed as much as possible !)
It can be any regular table you have at home which doesn't get heated. If you are willing to spend for added looks you can try these. This will not aid in entire cooling, but it will give your laptop some breathing space. The fancy table can be just another accessory, cooling pads will provide a good solution.

2) Don't obstruct the Air vents.
The air vents provide inward and outward movement of air, to regulate the temperature and minimize the heat. Some laptops have air vents at the side, so you have to check accordingly as many manufacturers place their components differently.
3) Use Laptop Cooling Pads:
If you use your laptop for gaming, it will max out the processing power, generate more heat, and for long hours cooling pads are recommended. They can well be used with non gaming laptops to ease the heating if you keep the laptop on for many hours.
Note: Make sure the placement of the air vents on your laptop and buy the cooling pad which correspond to it, else it would have no effect and be a waste if you get the wrong cooling pad for your laptop.
4) Use the Original Company recommended Laptop Battery:
Using a substandard battery can also heat the laptop or in worst case scenario risk an explosion and cause fire.
5) Clean The Air Vents, Heat-sinks & Fans: Get this done by a professional, or do it yourself if you have a manual to dismantle your laptop.
Note: Dismantling a laptop and putting it back together is a tedious process and proceed only if you know what you are doing.
Follow the above steps and you're ready to have a long lasting time with your beloved laptop.
