    It’s a laptop cooler --- but wait, there’s more!

    Monday, August 16th, Netcast 1156 

    The Cables Unlimited Super Laptop Cooler adds some extra features you normally don’t find. There are 3 USB 2.0 ports, but other coolers have those. But this cooler also adds a Card Reader. It has two 1600rpm fans, which for the most part are very quiet. For some reason every once in a while you can suddenly hear them, but they get quiet again if you unplug and restart them. In addition to the fans, the special aluminum should help dissipate heat. The Plug & Play built-in multi-card reader/writer support most popular flash card formats, including compact flash. Perfect for power laptop users who require advanced functionality while cooling their laptop. The dimensions - 3.94" x 12.91" x 0.79" – make it small enough to take on a trip. It weighs 1.3 pounds. In some of the reviews people say you only gain one USB port because you need two ports to connect and power the laptop cooler. You actually just need one. One of the two cables supplied lets you piggyback one of the connection cables so you only need to use one of the USB ports on the cooler. Prices are all over the price. I found it on a one-day close out at www.buy.com for just $10, but it normally sells for about $30 to $35, so do a web search to see the current lowest price.
