Cooler Master NotePal
Cooler Master recently launched two cooling systems for high-performance laptops. Both the NotePal and NotePal Wide Screen feature two 70mm, low-speed fans that actively reduce the temperature of the laptop; the operating heat can drop by as much as 30 degrees Fahrenheit, according to the company. The stand is USB-powered and includes a second USB port as a passthrough for a secondary device. Either model is available in anodized black or silver aluminum; the Wide Screen model is specially-made for 15-inch or smaller widescreen systems such as the MacBook Pro. No official pricing has been listed, though the NotePal models are shipping now.
