So cool

After those extended late night hacking sessions and far too much World of Warcraft I’ve been finding my poor Dell D600 lappy getting a bit hot under the collar.
Some might say that’s a good time to take a break. Feh! I say. Clearly there must be a technical solution to this problem.
And there is !
Laptop Cooling Options.
I bought the Vantec Lapcool 3 which for the princely sum of $25 Australian (about 10c US) I’ve now got a nice cool lappy to use.
Works great, powered by USB, adds about 1cm to the height of the lappy (which makes very little difference to my ergonomics). Super quiet, and my laptop never got above “tepid” over the weekend. It had been getting to “magma” and causing the CPU to go into “slowdown” mode.
