All laptops generate heat, and usually a lot of it. Heat is typically a lot bigger problem in laptops since they have the same hardware in a smaller space than their traditional counterparts. While most operating systems do allow you to turn down the clock speed of your processor, this comes with a performance hit and isn't ideal. The other solution to laptop heat is to use a piece of hardware like the Evercool Fit. The Evercool Fit is an external fan that sucks air out of the fan vents in the laptop. This provides extra airflow inside the laptop chassis, which is unique compared to other coolers that just increase airflow around the chassis. It should be interesting to see how this unique design works in comparison to other, more traditional, coolers.
The Evercool Fit comes in a cardboard box which is fairly easy to open; a nice change from the blister packs that so many products come in these days. Through the front you can see the physical product through a piece of clear plastic, and on the back there is a list of features, specifications, and a graphic representing Evercool's testing data. The side of the box shows the several different configurations that the cooler can be placed in.
The contents in the box are a USB to DC converter, a bag to carry around the Fit, three different angle brackets so you can align the fit with your laptop if it is slanted, and, of course, the Fit itself. The USB to DC cord is the retractable kind, so if you travel with the Fit, you won't have another long cord to carry around with it.
