I agree with that for the most part, but that's not always the case. I have a friend with a 12" notebook, and that thing gets hot. He told me so, but when I actually used it, I couldn't believe it. And he's using it on a flat surface, and keeps care of it like no one else. Thankfully, notebooks like these are hard to come by.

Even in his case though, I'm highly doubtful a notebook cooler would make an ounce of difference.
