Keep Laptop Cool with Simple Custom Riser
Rynone, William
Tech Directions, v72 n4 p22-23 Nov 2012
Although the author's netbook computer--a diminished capacity laptop computer--uses less power than its big brother, when working with it on his lap, his thighs are roasted, even in the winter. When using the unit on a flat surface, such as a table top, the bottom surface of the computer and table top become quite warm--and it is generally acknowledged that semiconductor life is diminished by high operating temperatures. Many students may encounter these concerns with laptops or netbooks of their own. This article offers a solution that they can easily make: a laptop (or netbook) riser. (Contains 1 figure.)
