Handy bendy blowyDiversifying in the cooler world is a tricky business, especially when it comes to external laptop coolers. My personal take is that they all kind of defeat the purpose of having a small, portable machine because you have to lug around another bit of kit. Sure, a laptop cooler for a notebook that hardly leaves the desk is fine but otherwise any additional cooling has to be small, light and not at all bulky.
So this is where Zaward reckon it has a decent offering with their still-in-development Golf Fan series laptop cooler. Final details are far from being definite, but the basic concept is there. You clip the cooler onto you PCMCIA or Express card slot, plug it into your laptop’s power supply and the fan in the ball on the end does the work of extracting hot air from your machine.
But here’s the thing, I don’t know if it’s just me, but, well… I don’t think this cooler would look out of place in an Ann Summers catalogue… all it needs is an offset weight on the fan and the Rabbit might have a serious challenger.
