    Well, from my experience, especially if you use your laptop in bed, or even just on your lap, it does actually get hot and it start making noises. I would suggest you use a cooling pad if you notice your laptop often overheats or starts being really noisy. This, especially if you use it in bed, on your lap, or any other surface that is made of soft material that would decrease your laptop's vent's activity. However, if you usually use it at a desk, for example, you probably won't need one.

    Same as was said, heat shortens the life of any electronic device, but you don't need it unless you leave it on all the time .

    When your laptops are regularly used, the internal fans of the laptops may be 'clogged' up and your laptop may overheat, that's where you may require cooling pads.  However, for me, I elevate my laptop during usage, to leave an empty space below it and get a small fan to blow through the space to 'cool' down the processor, and so far, I do not use a cooling pad.
