Wondering if anyone has a review for using one of these while watching media, etc


Would be good to have sitting on the desk

I have one, but rarely use it... the fan is rather loud. I don't really recommend to use it while watching movies. I used it before to play games on my MBA.

If you have the current generation of the MBA, watching media should be fine and not rock out the fans that much.

Put two and two together and it'd be obvious why I'm asking this question ;)

What's the price on one of those things?

Never mind, it's $75

I have the rev A AND living in the tropics so I'm a bit embarrassed to say that I now have 3 notebook cooler... a brand-less one, a fan-less one, and the Zephyr. I ended up using the brand-less (usb powered) simply because the angle is more comfortable to work on.

As for the Zephyr, for me, it helps only a little bit... it's difficult to get a full contact between the bottom of the notebook and the small area on the Zephyr which supposedly transfer the heat to the long metal strips, and the fan (albeit a small one).

It'd be nice to find an external cooling solution that DOES work

I wanted a Zefyr, but somehow it doesn't seem to make sense when I have the invisibleSHIELD on my computer.

Well to be honest do you have a Rev a or a Rev b? Be nice if you mentioned that fact so people with the same product can give you advice. Rev A and Rev B running this will have different results.

I have an A since it's already been mentioned and well known that Bs run media fine

It wouldn't look *awful* if you had cut out the square for the contact point, would it? I realize now that it's applied that's probably not worthwhile to get a new one or whatever.
