Wow! Really works and big enough for 17" widescreen laptop,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Targus AWE55EU Laptop Cooling Pad 2 fans laptop cooler fits 15"-17" (Electronics)
Having spent ages trying to decide which laptop cooler to buy (because most of them are tiny & I have a 17" widescreen laptop) as most of the descriptions are woefully inadequate as to the actual fitting dimensions of the laptop pads, I eventually decided upon this Targus Lap Chill Mat as it had one quite good review posted. Well, I'm jolly glad I did - it's great! From burning, blistering, sore knees to cool, comfortable - almost TOO cool knees and fingers in one go!! The fans on this product are wonderfully efficient and produce a noticeable negative chill environment, so much so that it actually makes your hands a little cold! My laptop used to run SO hot that it actually BURNT my leg and now, although I can still tell that it's trying to get warm, it's nowhere NEAR as warm as it used to be and even if it was, I'm insulated from the heat by the design of the pad being a wedge which keeps it away from me. It's very comfortable, light and easy to use and blows cold air through the keyboard as well as through the sides of the mat. It's barely audible, certainly no louder than the laptop itself and, despite being warned of a lengthy delay in delivery, turned up in a few days! Bliss! I can highly recommend this product, especially for hot-running larger-sized laptops that are kept on constantly (or justabout constantly) It will easily accommodate a 17.3" widescreen laptop without tipping up or falling off and is easy to use.
