    Consumers’ all time favorite, Tai-Chi Notebook Cooler, from Thermaltake Technology, is yet joining a new force.

    Tai-Chi S, latest passive notebook cooler invention from Thermaltake, was designed base on the concept of chimney effect (Tunnel Effect). Through the hollow aluminum extrusion tunnels, the cold air is guided inward. Relatively, the hot air exhausts through the holes on top of Tai-Chi S, effectively dissipate heat without the usage of fan.

    Tai-Chi S structures of solid aluminum as the body, and was reprocess Anodes treatment for unmatched beauty and quality with aluminum gunmetal finishing. Designed with tilt dynamic from top to bottom, Tai-Chi S balances with air convection and direct blown toward the heat source for fast heat exhaust, avoid system crash due to overheat. Tai-Chi S ergonomic and elevation design brings visual comfort; reduce eye-strain, and reducing typing discomfort.

    Not only is Tai-Chi S Notebook Cooler petite size, but also it comes with a free, convenient travelling pouch, letting user carry it along with wherever Notebook may go. Thermaltake Tai-Chi S Notebook Cooler delivers ultimate cooling solution and peace of mind for its user. For more information, please visit the product page.

    hmm this is very interesting, I should be getting a laptop for Christmas and Birthday so if needed I might invest in one of these.

    Also at 450g it's less than a bag of sugar! :D

    Couldn't you just prop up the laptop to get the same effect?

    Edit:

    I was reading about this chimney effect...its basic thermodynamics.

    In a stack structure, when heat rises to the top, it creates negative pressure below. Cold air then rushes from below to zero out that negative pressure.

    A cycle then begins...that cold air becomes hot...it rises to the top...creates negative pressure below...then more cold air enters from below.

    Problem is the the heated air is rising to the intake of your laptop...So propping the laptop up might have better performance that using this thing.
