Laptop cooler for 14" widescreen

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok I know how some people feel about laptop coolers and their effectiveness, but I know from my experience that heat kills computer hardware. I know that laptop cooling is generally weak, I also intend to run my equipment until it dies and if I can use a cooler and that extends the equipment 6 more months then it was worth it to me. With that said I still would like one.

Requirements:
USB powered
Fits 14in widescreen(Lenovo Y480)
Thin enough to easily fit into a laptop bag


Would be nice:
Fan control
Fans that can be moved or are located towards the front of the laptop(there are two vents one nearly under the touchpad, the other left front corner)
Lights...because whenever I use this its in the dark
On/Off switch

I say that the Cooler Master U2 is the best route to go down. I've got the U3 and it helps greatly. smile.gif

I looked at that one as well, but its over two inches thick, the ever cool is less than an inch. I really need portable on this.
