Laptop Lifts are by no means a feat of engineering, but they will let spilled milk glide right under your computer while providing some additional airflow.

Essentially adhesive, rubber strips, you wipe your laptop's surface clean and then you just peel and stick your way to a few glorious millimeters of clearance. They run $17.95 shipped, which is probably a few bucks more than your clever DIY solution, but you get six pieces of various sizes so you can probably treat a few electronics in your home.

ha! my laptop has this built in! its an HP TX2500z, and since I got the 8 cell battery the back is lifted up (the extra cells go on the bottom, not out the back) and the battery itself has little nubs on it that prevent it from getting damaged in a spill (and stop sliding) the front of my laptop also has the nubs.

yay.

although I had the idea for these a long time ago, I wanted to sell them. oh well, I have more ideas I've never seen before.
