So you want to get yourself a cooling pad for your laptop. Maybe you've seen them creeping into the suggested products on Amazon, or perhaps you've been enviously eyeing the cooling stand on your co-worker's desk. To help you find the right laptop cooler for you, we've tested and ranked 12 of the best-selling laptop cooling pads on the market.

We tested every laptop cooler with a variety of laptops, looking at how each pad handles cooling, what sort of performance boost it really offers and how noisy each one is when operating at peak cooling. When ranking the various products, we not only looked at how well the cooling pad controls temperature, but also considered the feature set, build quality and any unique aspects of the individual models.

    Yeah, but that same 30 degrees F is 272 degrees Kelvin!

    Idiot. There's a huge difference between a CPU running at 105F and 75F so - that 30 degrees difference is pretty damn significant.

    That 30 F is about 1 C.
    Totally insignificant!

    Urgh. Why put your measurements in Farenheit when almost every computer parts review uses Centigrade?

    Or just get a good gaming laptop / workstation laptop that can handle full load of the CPU and GPU simultaneous without throttling by itself. Hard to find but very possible.

    I have the "Targus Chill Mat and USB Hub" I use it with my Asus RoG High end gaming laptop. It has significant air flow. Keeps my rig quite cooled.

    I'm with Jake: is this "review" a joke? It looks like nothing more than one of those script-generated "stories"--no human even saw it.
