Targus Lap Chill Mat, cooling pad for your laptop Mac. A perfect and functional accessory for using your computer on your lap or directly on your desk.
If there are accessories that I like since I use my MacBook Pro as my main equipment they are this kind of stands or cooling pads. Although it is true that in winter the heat generated is not as much as in other seasons such as summer, it is always good if we are going to give intense use to our computer, or if we use it on the sofa covered with a blanket on a rainy afternoon.
I’ve long used the Belkin Cooling Laptop, a base with a central fan that cooled my MacBook Pro during the long hours of video encoding. The problem? It was only for use on the table. So when I wanted to use it on my lap that base was really uncomfortable and without the base the heat produced by the laptop was instantly noticeable.
With the Targus Lap Chill Mat I have solved both problems. On the one hand, I replaced the Belkin base with this one that besides cooling thanks to its two silent fans has a perfect inclination to work with the laptop on the table . And also, as it is designed to be used on the legs, I can take it to the living room and continue working without passing excessive heat.
Made of plastic and neoprene, it has sufficient consistency and comfort , which as they say makes it pleasant to use for long periods. The two 8cm diameter fans are located in the upper half of the base, coinciding with the hot spots of most equipment. Its surface is sufficient for both small equipment and even 17″ laptops. In the base itself there are four rubber bands that allow the equipment to be lifted just enough to improve the air flow.
No doubt, if you are looking for something similar I think it is a great option to consider. Besides being a good gift for that loved one in these dates that are approaching, also worth the self-gifts as is my case. The price of the Targus Lap Chill Mat is around 30 euros and you can find it in many establishments.
