My computer used to get very hot when in use, but then I purchased the Logitech Notebook Cooling Pad about a week ago, and it is working great.
I really love the smooth incline that is built into this pad, so using it at a desk is extremely comfortable. This cooling pad is very sturdy and has no moving parts which could break if dropped. Since this cooling pad is USB powered, the energy consumption is minimal. However, it would be wise to unplug the cooling pad when using your laptop without its power supply. My favorite feature of this cooling pad is that the fan is not direcly exposed to my legs, this allows the airflow to be continuous. This cooling pad also has openings for air intake at the rear of the cooling pad which allows for air intake from any position. Another great feature of this cooling pad is how silent the fan is, you won't even notice it running.The USB cable has a great feature that is mostly out of side and mind, on the bottom of the cooling pad there are indents for the USB cable to follow to any side of the laptop. This prevents the USB cable from protruding from the cooling pad and being annoying.
All in all, this cooling pad is well worth its price for its smooth incline, sturdy construction, low power comsumption, and silent fan. Definately give this cooling pad a good look, as its a wonderful cooling pad.
