We have a looked at a decent number of laptop coolers over the years; covering units that can be described as well designed and useful, to those that well, can't be described with such words. In this review we will take a look at the Cooler Master
NotePal X2 laptop cooler to try to decide which category it fits in to. When Cooler Master offered up this cooler I was pretty excited since I had been looking for a good laptop cooler, as the one I had been using worked OK, but was unfortunately just about unusable from an ergonomic point of view due to its flat design.
The promotional image above provides a quick look at the Notepal X2 laptop cooler which features a black mesh top surface that shows the 140mm blue LED cooling fan found inside.
