ORICO Readies NCA Series Passive Laptop Cooling Pads

ORICO is working on a new line of passive notebook cooling pads that are made of thick sheets of perforated aluminum with rubber feet and grips. Designed for 15.6-inch and 14-inch notebooks, these coolers raise notebooks at a fixed angle, from where passive air cooling takes over. CGI drawings reveal that the aluminum sheets that make up most of the pad dissipate heat from the notebook to the air. The perforations on its surfaced are designed in a way that allows users to strap PC fans on to it, of almost any shape and size, and at almost any specific region of the pad. There is no word on availability.

Not so hot they need this. Sure if you have a high powered quad core and a high end GPU they get hot but most laptops don't have that fancy stuff.

Yes, most don't need this, but with the current style of cutting costs I see a lot of budget laptops running uncomfortably hot even for their low end chips.

I don't see how the "aluminum sheets that make up most of the pad dissipate heat from the notebook"

if the concept of the design is for the aluminum sheet to act as a thermal conductor, ok I see where they are going with this, BUT... THEN... they add raised rubber pads which defeats the whole purpose of the concept, not even taking account of the fact that laptops themselves have rubber feet that acts as insulators between the chassis and the pad.

No, the idea is to create a gap between the table and the laptop so that the laptop will not be air starved. However, this approach is highly dependent on how the laptop cooling system is arranged. My laptop will benefit from this because it sucks air from below, but for others it sucks and blows air from the back or the side, making it quite useless. Ultrabooks will benefit from the cooling pads with fans, but that completely defeats their purpose being ultraportable laptops.

Whilst correct this profudt is still rendered utterly pointless as the same cooling ability can be achieved by sticking a couple rubbers / erazers under the back of the laptop.

I used to do this with my old Alienware M11x when clocking it.

Now add a silent fan to this and it will work, otherwise I don't see how it could drop temps more than 2c.
