that's such a great Pee pee protector.  I just need some fedex boxes. 

my computer gets real hot, & my bed is the only place in the second floor room that gets reception, so I always have to sit on the floor...

& it holds the laptop ok?  Like it won't buckle or anything?  how long have you been using it?

That's a good question!  How heavy is your laptop?

FedEx boxes are surprizingly sturdy and you put the medium box inside the two large for even more sturdyness.  There hasn't been any buckling at all.  My laptop is the HP dv1000 it weighs 5.26lbs. 

No problemo!!!

Does your laptop get too hot for the box?

I have what looks like the same you have, and mine gets really warm.. I hope this isn't a potential fire hazard.  Shocked

You came in from the darkness and held the door open wide
You stood there like a vision before my unbelieving eyes
I believe in what I see and also what I hear
But did the night play tricks on me or were you really there.

No there is no problem.  Remember there are vents on the bottom of the laptop as long as the vents are not obstructed the computer is ok. Mine has little rubber pads on the bottom to keep it elevated. Because the surface of the box is hard and flat it's just fine. 

I can't see it getting hot enough to set anything on fire  Smiley

My craft supply philosophy I stole from a line from AVP. ''I'd rather have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.'' But, they were talking about a condom. Tongue

This is a crafting challenge waiting to happen! It is such a great idea, I can't wait to see what clever ways people come up with to modify the idea!

Then you haven't had the extremely funny but yet extremely dangerous opportunity to see a laptop burst in flames. Just remember to turn your laptop off when you're away from it for too long
