Asking for a friend: What is the best cooling station for a Macbook (13", not Pro)?

The lappy in question heats up after a couple-to-a-few hours of usage even on normal flat surfaces (tables, counters, etc.). The internal fan must be too close to the internal microphone, because when using Skype (etc.) the noise of the fan overloads the call with a loud white noise. Its a couple years old, but that's the only problem with it - just gets too darn hot underneath.
Recommendations are welcome - Google results are generally pointing towards Targus stations that lift up the back end of the laptop, but this seems a rather passive approach. Are there better options with internal fans / other systems for keeping this thing from cooking? Thanks!
