    Per Rain Design's website:
    Why isn't the iLap perforated (with holes) for better cooling?
    Perforations are required for surfaces that don't conduct heat well, like plastic (which is a heat insulator).

    The iLap's all aluminium thermal conductivity is 13 times more than stainless steel, and thus the more surface that it has in contact with the notebook, the more heat that it draws away (in the same conceptual way that heat sink works on the CPU).
