Cooler Master NotePal LapAir for Cool Computing on the Go Michael Kwan May 18, 2011 Press Release 1 Comment 1 Flares 1 Flares × I still use the CoolerMaster NotePal ErgoStand as my primary notebook cooler, but that product isn't exactly great when you want to use a laptop in your lap. For that, Cooler Master is proud to reveal the NotePal LapAir. Quite unlike products like the NotePal U3 and others, this laptop cooler was designed from the ground up for use in your lap. You get an ergonomic surface for your notebook of choice, as well as a relatively silent fan to prevent that computer from burning a hole in your jeans. I think it's great how you can take it apart for easy cleaning too, since those fans can gather quite a bit of dust. Look for the NotePal LapAir stand soon at a retailer for you. MSRP is set at $29.99. I'd love to get my hands on one to pit it against my notebook cooler wish list. Full Press Release » Chino, CA – May, 2011 Cooler Master is proud to announce a product that redraws the line between laptop coolers and working comfortably. This product is the Notepal LapAir and its promise is to give users more freedom to use their laptop where they please. Ultimate Comfort The Notepal LapAir is a simple and elegant solution to a problem that has existed since the mass production of laptops. That is, finding a comfortable way to use a laptop away from a desk without it overheating or burning the user. A laptop cooler and a cushion have come together to create the perfect away from the office companion. It allows users to work on their laptop anywhere they can find a seat or lay down. The LapAir becomes an ergonomic surface for viewing and typing while resting on a users lap. Cooler Master understands that comfort is paramount in these situations and the Notepal LapAir is engineered to deliver. Silent Cooling Fan noise is often at odds with a laptop user’s ability to maintain peace and concentrate on what they are doing. This is no longer an issue with the Notepal LapAir. It utilizes a virtually noiseless cooling fan without sacrificing cooling performance. This is achieved, in part, by using rear air intakes to bring in cool air. It also utilizes a low speed high performance fan to move plenty of air to assist in cooling vital areas of a laptop. Easy Cleaning Dust can be a problem with computer equipment and it is important to make the task of cleaning as easy as possible. The LapAir comes equipped with a high quality mesh panel in the pad that acts as a dust filter for exhausted air. This same pad is easily removed for cleaning via pull tab. A user can then clean the cooling fan and mesh panel effortlessly while not relying on tools for removal or installation. The Notepal LapAir carries a MSRP of $29.99 and will be available at popular retail and e-tail stores soon.
