DeepCool has a N9 Aluminum laptop cooler that supports up to 17", I would think that it would hold the 17.3" model too.

You are correct. Laptop cooling pads provide a surface for laptops to rest on so air will circulate through the laptop when the cooling pad is placed on a soft surface such as a blanket. They also allow your hands a more natural approach because the laptop does not sink into the soft surface either.
