When it comes to choosing between a silent laptop cooler or a powerful laptop cooler you really only have to ask yourself how you use your laptop.
If for instance you like to play games on your laptop, then a powerful notebook cooler is more than likely the best way to go. If on the other hand you work on your laptop a lot, then you might find a silent laptop cooler more fitting for your needs.
There are of course other factors which you should take in to consideration when you buy a laptop cooler, for instance the reliability and construction of a notebook cooler can also be highly important. The best laptop coolers tend to have an aluminum frame, rather than a plastic construction, and high quality fans inside to provide powerful but quiet laptop cooling.
Of course trying to decide between a silent or powerful laptop cooler can be a hard, but needless choice. The Zalman notebook cooler range for instance incorporates fantastic high powered cooling and combines it with some near silent quiet notebook cooler fans. This great package gives you the best of both worlds!
