Prevent laptop overheating

Keep your laptop cool and save money

Microsoft Notebook Cooling Base (Black)

The Microsoft Cooling Base (Model Z3C-00005)

microsoft zc3 cooling baseIt’s really common to see a lot of laptop cooling pads which work either as a desktop station or which can be balanced on your knee – but not both.

The Microsoft cooling base is well suited for use on both desk, or workstation, and your lap. You just turn it thropugh 90 degrees and it is very comfortable to use on your lap.

When being used on a flat surface, the foldable leg can be popped up and you will have your laptop at a nice angle which makes typing easier.

It’s also very slim and lightweight. That’s a very handy feature if you will be moving your laptop from one place to another.

That’s not just a consideration for those who take their laptop out and about with them. Think about how often you move from your desk to the sofa, to the bed, back to the desk, with your laptop during the course of a day. A lightweight and portable cooling pad is definitely a good idea!

It has a single fan, centrally located, which is powered by plugging into a spare usb port on your laptop.

There’s also a clip to keep your cables neat and tidy.

You can choose from black (shown above right) or white – whichever suits your laptop (and your decor) best.
