Cooler Master – Putting The Fun In Functional
Obviously you want a cooling pad that is efficient and which keeps your laptop as cool as possible – but there’s no harm in putting the fun into functional – and the Notepal I100, from Cooler Master, does just that.
As you can see from the image on the right, the I100 comes in no fewer than seven different color options! You can choose from white, orange, green, pink, blue, red and black.
But a great color range is far from all that the I100 has going for it. The large, 140 mm fan will keep your laptop cool, and it runs virtually silently too!
It’s powered by connecting into a spare usb port on your laptop – but you won’t need to sacrifice a usb port if you need it for something else. The I100 uses a “pass through” usb connector – which means that you can just connect another usb device into the same socket by piggy-backing onto the I100’s connector.
The upper surface is a metal mesh, which allows air to flow just where it’s needed to keep your laptop cool. You can also vary the angle of the cooling pad using two flip up legs at the rear of the pad so that you get the ideal working position for you.
The I100 is also light and portable. It weighs just 1.5 pounds and is only 23 mm thick – a little less than an inch if you prefer. Dimensions are; 13.8 x 9.8 x 0.9 inches. It’s suitable for laptops with up to a 15.6″ display – but you’ll be able to slip it into your laptop bag and take it with you wherever you go.
Here’s a quick video summary of the key points of the I100:
As mentioned above, the I100 is good for laptops up to 15.6″. If you have a bigger laptop, then you can always consider the I300, which is good for laptops up to 19″. As well as being a little bigger, the I300 comes with some funky LED lighting.
