I included an Xpad in Christmas List for 2009 and opened it on Christmas day. What a difference! Normally, after hours of playing, I semi-burn myself on my MacBook Pro. Not anymore. This geeky gadget provides a great shield against the heat and also helps cool down my system for better performance.
Out of the box I noticed that my laptop is running cooler…about 20 degrees cooler. Normally, my laptop runs past 170 degrees. With the Xpad, I’m running around 150 or less. This all depends on what I’m doing at the time.
What do I like about the Xpad? I like that it doesn’t require USB power or external power. I’ve purchased some laptop coolers for friends but they all require some kind of external power like a battery or USB. This laptop cooler uses passive technology (no batteries needed). The second thing I like about it is that it’s light. I mean really light.
I recommend this cooler for anyone who needs a simple passive cooling system for their laptop.
