To test the Evercool Fit notebook cooler, I used it to help cool my Macbook Pro. For a control I am using the laptop sitting on the desk, then, I am letting the laptop run in an idle state while running a temperature monitoring application (iStat Pro) to get both my CPU and GPU temperatures. This was repeated with the cooler and the control. To get load temperatures, I chose to run World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, which stresses the hardware inside my Macbook Pro, generating heat. Again, this was repeated on the cooler and the desk. The results from this laptop are going to be very specific to a Macbook Pro as other laptops will have different vents and different internal configurations.
- Apple MacBook Pro 15" Generation 3
- 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo

- 2GB PC2-5300 DDR2 SO-DIMM SDRAM
- 120GB SATA Hard Drive (5400 RPM)
- AirPort Extreme 802.11 a/b/g/draft-n
- 8x Slot Loading Super Drive
- LaTosta Laptop Stand

- Lapworks Attaché Laptop Stand

- Evercool Hermes

The results below show that the Evercool Fit does indeed cool off the laptop to some degree when compared to the desk temperature. While some coolers do beat out the Fit for amount of cooling, it also is very mobile which is a unique quality in itself.
Lower numbers are better.
The Fit does offer improved cooling over no solution at all in an ultra portable design.
