This article is rather old, so I hope it's an option for newer notebook/laptops. I recently bought a refurbished HP notebook, and the rubber "feet" were off within a week or two. I am not good with manual tasks; afraid to use glue. A friend has felt sheets (or I could buy tabs/buttons in different sizes). Is this still OK for newer laptops? It's not the battery heat I am worried about so much as the sliding around of the laptop on my lap-table that is annoying.Thanks.

BTW, I didn't know they were called "feet". I just call them "thingies". : )
