As laptops keep getting smaller and smaller, the insides of the laptops get hotter and hotter. While the companies that produce the components used in the laptops keep trying to make these components use less electricity and run cooler, there is still a long way to go especially when it is no easy feat to make something both smaller and cooler. The heat that these components generate is not good for them and can decrease the lifespan of your laptop, so taking every measure that you can is a responsible action. To do this, most people buy laptop coolers which typically try to increase airflow around the laptop. Like all products, these laptop coolers all sport different feature sets and preform differently. Hopefully, through this review, you will be able to choose a laptop cooler that fits your needs.
The Lapworks Attaché Laptop Stand is one laptop cooler that you might consider. This cooler is made out of Aluminum and has two small fans embedded in the surface of it. There is also a USB hub which can help you have the ability to plug a few more USB devices into your laptop. While the Attaché cools the laptop, there is also a second benefit that it aims to provide: ergonomics. The bottom of the Attaché can be raised to several different heights depending on how your laptop is set up. Some settings make it more comfortable to type, while others make it easier to see. All these features will be discussed in depth in the following review, so if you are interested in making your laptop last longer and protecting your body from unnecessary strain, read on!
The Lapworks Attaché Laptop Stand comes packaged in a very simple way. In fact, all that contains the pack is a plastic bag which can be opened easily like any other plastic ziploc style bag.
The Attaché itself is an aluminum block with two silent fans in the middle and two fold out feet at the bottom that can be used to keep your laptop from sliding down the front of the cooler. The back is made of plastic and has the intake for the fans. The height adjustment stand is also made of the backing material and folds into the back.
As you can see below, there are several different heights that the Attaché can go to ranging from the highest, on the right, and the lowest, on the left.
Lets move on and take a look at the other items that come with the Attaché.
