Cooler Master NotePal A200 Laptop Cooler

Laptops are becoming increasingly common these days. They range from tiny inexpensive netbooks to 17"+ high-powered quad-core gaming rigs. With the advancement of high-performance mobile computing power comes the necessary evil of heat that's generated by these components. The biggest drawback that laptops have in the cooling department versus their desktop brethren is cooling. Desktop computers have room for large cooling units that can easily dissipate the heat generated by the internal components. Laptops, however, need to cool their parts with limited space. Many companies offer stands to place your laptop on that provide additional clearance for airflow, and some even have integrated fans that help force fresh cool air into your hot laptop. Cooler Master has sent us their latest laptop cooler, the NotePal A200, to check out so let's get to it!
