Laptops are amazing machines that pack a lot of punch in a small package and as a result, they get very hot. Depending on how much you know about computers, you may or may not know that heat can cause your computer to run in a very unstable way and reduce the life of the many components used to make it run. To combat this in a traditional computer, people can buy heatsinks, water cooling systems, or increase their airflow through the case. However, none of those solutions are very practical on a laptop, so an alternate solution has surfaced. This solution is to place fans underneath the laptop to increase airflow around it. This is in the hope that this increased airflow can move the old, hot air out of the way, for cooler air to come in contact with the chassis and cool the components inside.
The Rosewill RNA-700W Notebook Cooler does just this. With two small fans that are powered by USB under a solid aluminum stand, air flow can be increased to the bottom of the chassis, cooling it the laptop and the components inside. Also, the notebook cooler is tilted at a slight angle which allows for the Rosewill to serve a second purpose, which is to improve the ergonomics of the keyboard. Lets take a closer look at the Rosewill and see how much the temperatures drop.
The Rosewill Notebook Cooler is one of the most simple coolers I have ever seen. It comes in a cardboard box which lists some of the specifications and features on the front and back. A large picture is also present on the front which gives you an idea of what it looks like, but I had a hard time seeing that it was tilted.
Opening the clamshell style box reveals the Rosewill Cooler sitting right on top. There isn't much to see here except that the fans are in the middle and there is a nice styled Rosewill logo in the middle of the two fans.
