Summary:

The Cooler Master NotePal I-100  is the perfect carry companion. It is thin and light-weight, and has a beautiful design with a solid construction. It comes with great cable routing options, and a plethora of colors to choose from. The 140mm intake fan is very quiet and pushes a fair amount of air. I like the piggyback USB 2.0 connection leaving you open to plug in another device. The low power consumption is a big plus as well, giving you longer battery life, while the solid construction will support the heaviest laptops and the packaging doubles as a carrying case.

While other coolers will give you lights and switches, and all the bling and extras at a higher price tag, for the most part they are all show and no go. So again it is really nice to see Cooler Master bringing to the consumer a cooler like the NotePal I-100. It does the job it was designed to do. It keeps your laptop cooler and doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg to do it. I am pleased to say that the Cooler Master NotePal I-100 did a good job of keeping our temps under control both at normal use and while we were stressing out the system.

The bottom line is that with an MSRP of only $19.99 US, the NotePal I-100 is a very inexpensive laptop cooler. In our testing under very extreme conditions, it did an adequate job. If you’re in the market for a laptop cooler that’s built well is light weight, and is simple to use then you should strongly consider Cooler Master’s NotePal I-100.

The Cooler Master NotePal ERGO 360 is the perfect desktop cooler built for the working stiff. If you spend hours a day on your laptop, or maybe are a hardcore mobile gamer, then this would be the cooler I would definitely recommend. The big thing here is ergonomics. With its many options, the NotePal ERGO 360 is ahead of the pack, and the perfect solution for the multi-tasking individual. It’s not only well built and beautiful to look at, but it’s the all in one solution for people on the go.

The two 80 mm fans are more than enough to cool the biggest laptops, and if you’re going to add an additional keyboard, mouse, or tablet to this ensemble, I believe you have definitely made the right choice. This cooler is the perfect ergonomic solution for the workaholic, and will do a great job of cooling your laptop. I would highly recommend the Cooler Master ERGO 360 for those reasons. With an MSRP of only $34.99, it should be on everyone’s short list. Both coolers garner Pure Overclock’s Great Hardware award.
