It's a pad. It cools. But not much.
on 14 January 2009
My Dell laptop can reach scorching temperatures. Its temperature readout gets up to 90° sometimes. So for months I have propped the back end of the laptop up on a book, which lifts the base and the fan off the worksurface and allows hot air to escape.
When propped up and idle, the temperature tends to be around 62°.
So in excitement I connected the new cooler pad. Here are my observations:
- It's more stable than a book
- It lights up in flourescent purple
- It doesn't make too much noise at this time
And the temperature of the laptop after 30 minutes of waiting in idleness?
So if you really want a pad, go ahead with this one. It's OK.
But if you desperately need to cool your laptop, prop its back-end up on a book. It will be almost as effective.
