Laptop Cooling Stand with USB Ports, Slot-Loading HDD Dock

As surprising as this may sound to some people, I haven’t had a desktop as my primary computer for a number of years now. While I still had access to one for the purposes of reviewing certain computer products, I haven’t used the desktop as my main computer for at least two or three years now. It’s all about the laptop.

Relying solely on a notebook surely has its shortcomings, but this new laptop cooler from Brando seems to address at least a couple of these issues. First, many notebook PCs have inadequate cooling, so that’s why you may want to invest in a laptop cooler stand. You get a more ergonomic typing angle and the dual fans help to keep the temperature down.

Rocking something like the MacBook Air and lacking in the USB port department? In exchange for taking one of those ports from your laptop, this Brando cooler will give you three available USB 2.0 ports for all flash drives and other peripherals.

Perhaps the most notable feature on this innovative laptop cooler, however, is the plug-and-play docking station for a 2.5-inch hard drive. There’s a slot at the back of the cooler, next to the USB ports, where you can just shove in your 2.5-inch SATA hard drive. That’s pretty sweet, I’d say, though the data transfer speed will still be bottlenecked by the USB connection.

I doubt that you’ll be able to run two fans, three USB ports, and a SATA drive through a single powered bus, so there’s a good chance that you’ll need to use the backup AC power cable too. Find this crazy laptop cooler on Brando for $33.
