The Cooler Master NotePal LapAir brings a refreshing change of pace to the laptop cooler race. Whilst most developers are quickly striving for more power, speed, size and cooling ability, the Cooler Master LapAir takes a step back and provides a laptop cooler that is designed for comfortable home use.
The first thing you notice about this laptop cooler is it’s light weight, and sturdy feel. Though it doesn’t weigh much, it doesn’t feel cheap. The second thing I noticed as I sat down on my couch was that the foam base really does make this incredibly comfortable to use, and with adjustable height settings, it is ergonomically correct anywhere around the home.
I was disappointed to see no provisions had been made for a mouse pad, but you cant have it all!
When it comes to the performance of this laptop cooler, don’t expect miracles, while it was nice to see Cooler Master added a heat sink to the fan, its still only a single 80mm silent fan, and has limited power behind it.
In truth, this laptop cooler is not made for the gamers or the silence cravers of many other products in the industry, instead it fills a niche, the niche of people who have burned out laptops on their bed sheets, those who slouch on the couch and catch up on Facebook after work, it is in fact the ultimate ‘home’ laptop cooler for the casual individual.
On top of that, you have a USB pass through port and this cooler can support up to 17 Inch laptops in size. This does mean that the laptop cooler might feel a little too large if you have a 13 inch net book, but suits most mainstream laptop sizes perfectly.
I would recommend it if you are looking for a home laptop cooler, a utility cooler, and not something for your office or for gaming. It works well, comes at a cheap price, and handles general home laptop use with ease!
