Thermaltake iXoft Notebook Cooling Pad

Picked it up for $23 at directron.

- fits a 15.4" laptop nicely
- Thin, flexible. Easy to carry with you when you travel.
- Keeps your lap (and laptop) nice and cool. Comfortable soft fabric backing.
- The surface is a bit too slippery for my tastes. That combined with the flexible aspect makes it a bit cumbersome to use on your lap. For lap use I still prefer the lapinator.
- Works great if you plan to use it just to keep the laptop cooler when using on a desk.

I currently keep the iXoft in my laptop bag to use when I travel. For everyday home use I still prefer the Lapinator.

- That black felt backing picks up dog hair like you would not believe. If you have a dog or go visit friends/family with a dog bring a lint remover!
