In the world of computers, heat tends to be a bad thing. Heat is a major limiting factor in the performance of most computers, especially laptops, which do not have room for large fans or other cooling systems due to their compact size.
This is where an external notebook or laptop cooler, like this one from Antec, comes in handy. The design of this cooler allows a constant airflow underneath the laptop, bringing in cool air and removing the hot air. This constant circulation of air, in theory, helps the performance of the laptop. Anyone who has used their laptop on their legs will also appreciate not having the hot bottom of the laptop resting directly on their thighs.
Antec has been around since 1986, and has experience in providing high quality computer parts to both users and retailers. Their current lineup includes items such as cases, power supplies, cooling fans, lighting components, and other accessories.
The Antec Laptop Cooler comes packaged in a pleasantly-styled cardboard box with a built-in carry handle in the top. Product details and specifications are provided in 5 different languages on the box, with specifications laid out on one side panel. The cooler is packaged in Styrofoam.
