    laptop coolers

    I bought a new Lenovo Z50 laptop, i7 with 8gig ram. I have bad luck with laptops crapping out on me after 2 years due to over-heating. This time I want to try a laptop cooler, but how good are they at doing what they promise to do? Many laptops these days don't have vents on the bottom. So how does a cooling pad keep the system cool if it can't push cool air into vents below? I'm looking at Coolmaster series but should I go with the one with one massive fan or the ones with smaller 3 movable fans work better at keeping things cool?

    I have found they are a big help in keeping things cooler and extending life. My wife's laptop kept shutting down due to over heating even with a basic small fan cooler but the problem was solved with one of large fan coolers, I had to go to Amazon to find that one, they rate the different models so if you have a big heat problem look for ones rated for gaming laptops.

    OK, I figured ones made for gaming would be more powerful.

    The coolers I used for an older laptop I had improved my experience with them, but I'm not sure if they're all that useful for newer models. Does your new laptop actually get hot after extensive use? I've heard someone say newer models don't overheat nearly as fast; if it doesn't get hot you might as well not use a cooler.

    Also, I've heard that today's laptops weren't built to last to begin with and that expecting otherwise will probably just set you up for disappointment.

    Re: laptop coolers

    My laptop is five years old and it rarely overheats. The reason being, I always rest it on a piece of flat board. I have a thin piece of plyboard (5mm) which I covered with fabulon (an adhesive book backing plastic sheet that comes in rolls) and it forms a nice surface upon which to rest the computer between my knees whilst I type this in bed, on a table, or when I'm on the sofa.

    If your house is relatively dust and lint free, this helps, as that stuff gets sucked in by the fan when it tries to cool the computer's main processors. If you can get it serviced once a year, then you should ask that it be cleaned. I don't, using just running the vacuum hose over the fan and exhaust grills.

    The little stubby foot rests underneath the computer helps lift the main body of the underside up, allowing airflow. With a board underneath, this allows optimal cooling. I've tried those fans that blow air up towards the underside of the laptop, but, I've found they're more bother than they're worth. Only when the temperature rises to over 20' C/68' F do I worry about heating to use that.

    What about all that dry skin/dust that comes from a circumcised man's penis? I've heard that stuff goes everywhere when they get going.

    Mind the static electricity.
    Vacuum cleaners are nasty with that shit. And, you don't want to suck lint balls farther back into the machine, either, with any reversed airflow – they can short things out, too.

    The new laptop doesn't heat up at all yet, but I felt like I should take care of it early on to make it last longer. Getting a setup to lift off the flat mattress is the best thing to do. And ye, laptops these days are much flimsier in construction than they were a decade ago. I think this is a new trend for consumer products for a while now.
