Summer is already here and for this reason, working with a portable computing system is becoming less and less of a pleasure and more and more of a nuisance, at least as far as the temperature factor is concerned. As we all know only too well, portable computing systems tend to get quite hot, especially if you're using them for longer periods of time, something that might prove to be more or less pleasurable in winter, but, at the same time, it's really not so cool during the hot summer days.
In any case, quite a few solutions for such a problem have been developed, one of the most popular being represented by notebook coolers, whose main purpose is to reduce the temperature of a portable computing system's underside, making it more bearable for the user. Of course, some of these cooling systems can be easily carried around, but others are rather desktop-bound, due to their inherent features and specs.
As you might remember, a short while ago, we took for a spin a very attractive cooling solution from Cooler Master, namely the X1
, whose main features were the very interesting design and level of portability. And now, it's time to check out another Cooler Master solution, one designed for more power rather than portability, namely the Notepal W2 Notebook Cooler, which comes equipped with no less than three different fans and is able to deliver a much more impressive cooling action, compared to its sibling.
Of course, the W2 does have its shortcomings (especially in the field of portability), as well as a completely different design from that of the X1, but that's really not that important. What's truly important here is the just how proficient this thing is at cooling down one's portable computer.
