Laptops: How do you prop up yours?

I admit I have selfish reasons for an interest in this story: a couple of weeks ago, I ordered a laptop (in fact, it's the Dell Inspiron 1525, which thankfully got the Popgadget thumbs up last week) and I'm expecting it soon. It will be the first time I've ever owned a laptop, although I've used other people's and cried when I had to give them back, of course. But I know portability doesn't come without a price and I'm interested to hear how more experienced laptop owners cope with two of the most common challenges: finding a comfortable place and angle to type, and making sure the machine doesn't overheat.

So Lifehacker's article on the top home-made laptop stands immediately caught my eye. These homemade stands tackle issues of comfort and practicality with clever (and just as importantly, cheap) design ingenuity.

Which one do you like best? I like the binder, below, for the dual purpose elevation and wire housing:
